  • 23. The prominent style of SteveHe used to say that :- I save time even on thinking what to wear every morning .
  • 24. Jobs  believes  that  everything  happens  for  a  reason  and  although  that  reason  may  be  hard  to  see  at  the  time,  sometimes  you  need  to  just  sit  back  and  have  faith  that  things  will  work  out  in   the  end.  Trusting  your  own  decisions  is  often  one  of  the  most  difPicult  but  necessary  and   rewarding  experiences.  
  • 25. Jobs  knows  how  lucky  he  is  to  have  discovered  his  passion  in  life  at  an  early  age.  Jobs  considers  the  passion  he  has  for  his  work  one  of  the  most  important  factors  behind  his  immense  success.  Jobs  is  now  living  his  dream  life.  He  continues  to  work  on  a  daily  basis,  to  experiment  and  to  innovate.  He  admits  that  the  only  thing  that  keeps  him  coming  to  work  every  day  is  his  passion.
  • 26. Steve  Jobs  Quotes Listen!  I ll  Tell  
  • 27. I  didn t  see  it  then,    but  it  turned  out  that   getting  Pired  from   Apple  was  the  best    thing  that  could  have     ever  happened  to   me.
  • 28. It  freed  me  to  enter  one    of  the  most  creative  periods   of  my  life.  Jobs  went  on  to   create  NeXT  and  Pixar  and  eventually  returned  to  Apple   when  it  purchased  NeXT.  
  • 29. Steve s
  • 30. You  have  to  trust  in   something  –  your  gut,   destiny,  life,  karma,    whatever.  This  approach   has  never  let  me  down,   and  it  has  made  all  the   difference  in  my  life.
  • 31. Your  time  is  limited,    so  dont  waste  it  living  someone  elses   life.
  • 32. The  only  way  to  do  great  work  is  to  love  what  you  do.  If  you  haven t  found   it  yet,  keep  looking.  Don t  settle.
  • 33. It  has  been  Jobs  willingness  to  seize  new  opportunities  and  take  the  road  less  traveled  that  has    allowed  him  to  rise  above  his  competitors.  This  has  helped  Jobs  not  only  become  one  of  the  most  successful  entrepreneurs  of  the  20th  century,  but  has  also  let  him  live  his  dream  life.  He  is  both  a    workaholic  and  a  devoted  family  man  and  never  loses  any  opportunity  to  improve  upon  both.  
  • 34. Whenever  the  answer  has  been   No  for  too  many  days  in  a  row,  I  know   I  need  to  change  something,  
  • 35. If  you  live  each  day  as  if  it  was  your  last,  someday  youll  most  certainly  be  right.  
  • 36. Dont  be  trapped  by  dogma  –  which  is  living  with  the  results  of  other    peoples  thinking.  Dont  let  the  noise  of  others  opinions  drown  out  your  own   inner  voice.  They  somehow  already  know  what  you  truly  want  to  become.    
  • 37. Jobs  learned  the  importance  of    making  the  most  of  his  time  when  he  was  diagnosed  with  cancer  in  2004.     My  doctor  advised  me  to  go  home    and  get  my  affairs  in  order,  which  is   doctor s  code  for  prepare  to  die.
  • 38. When  Jobs  spoke  at  the  summer  convocation  of  Stanford  University  in  2005,   Remembering  that  Ill  be   dead  soon  is  the  most  important   tool  Ive  ever  encountered  to  help   me  make  the  big  choices  in  life,   because  almost  everything  –  all  external  expectations,  all  pride,  all   fear  of  embarrassment  or  failure     –  these  things  just  fall  away  in     the  face  of  death,  leaving  only     what  is  truly  important.  
  • 39. Remembering  that  you  are  going  to  die  is  the  best  way  I  know  to  avoid  the   trap  of  thinking  you  have  something     to  lose.  You  are  already  naked.  There  is  no  reason  not  to  follow  your  heart.
  • 40. Innovation  is  the     distinction  between  a  leader  and  a  follower.
  • 41. To  turn  really  interesting  ideas  and     Pledgling  technologies  into  a  company    that  can  continue  to  innovate  for  years,   it  requires  a  lot  of  disciplines.  
  • 42. Your  work  is  going  to  Pill  a  large  part  of  your  life,  and  the  only  way  to  be  truly  satisPied  is  to  do  what    you  believe  is  great  work.  
  • 43. "Thats  been  one  of  my  mantras  -­‐-­‐  focus  and  simplicity.  Simple  can   be  harder  than  complex:  You   have  to  work  hard  to  get  your   thinking  clean  to  make  it  simple.   But  its  worth  it  in  the  end   because  once  you  get  there,  you   can  move  mountains.   -­‐Steve  Jobs   BusinessWeek  interview,  May  1998  
  • 44. "Were  here  to  put  a  dent  in  the  universe.  –Steve  Jobs  "Death  is  very  likely  the  single  best  invenPon  of  Life.  It  is  Lifes  change  agent.  It  clears  out  the  old  to  make   way  for  the  new.  
  • 45. "My  model  for  business  is  The  Beatles.  They  were  four  guys  who  kept  each  others  kind  of  negaPve  tendencies  in  check.  They  balanced  each  other  and  the  total  was  greater  than  the  sum  of  the  parts.  Thats  how  I  see  business:  great  things  in  business  are  never  done  by  one  person,  theyre  done  by  a  team  of  people.  
  • 46. You  know,  we  dont  grow  most  of  the   food  we  eat.  We  wear  clothes  other   people  make.  We  speak  a  language  that  other  people  developed.  We  use   a  mathematics  that  other  people   evolved...  I  mean,  were  constantly     taking  things.  Its  a  wonderful,     ecstatic  feeling  to  create  something    that  puts  it  back  in  the  pool  of  human   experience  and  knowledge.
