Steve Jobs- the legend of technology world. October 5th 2011 is the day which people all over the world can not forget.It is the minute people said goodbye to CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, for the last time.Apple lost a visionary and creative genius and the world lost an amazing humanbeing. One more time I have wondered what made him be such successful.Finally, I found my answer. Maybe his success came from his own passion, hisinnovating mind and his determine to overcome failure. Like other people, Steve had his own passion. After six months in StanfordUniversity, he decided to drop out and stopped taking the required classes thatdidn`t interest him. In fact, entering an expensive university as Stanford was hisfamily`s wish not his passion. Leaving the university to find another way todiscover himself led him to information technology. In his most famous speech inStanford University, he said that “ Your time is limited so don`t waste it livingsomeone else`s life… And most importance have the courage to follow your heartand intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.Everything else is secondary”. With own passion, he devoted all his life to workhard and creatively. Until last days in his life, many his co-workers till saw himworking for new product. He passed away just one day after IPHONE 4S was
introduced to the world. His doctor said that he could pass away earlier but hislove and passion for his job helped him have more energy to wait the born ofIPHONE4. It was his passion that helped him to find true way to achieve success. If passion took him to follow his dream with all effort, innovating mindmade him be a special person, a genius, in his field. For him, creativity isconnecting things. People with a broad set of life experiences can often see thingsthat others miss. He took calligraphy classes that did not have any practical use inhis life until he built the Macintosh. It was the first computer with beautifultypography. He designed Macbook with multiple typefaces and proportionallyspaced fonts, and since windows just copied the Mac. He creatively combinedcalligraphy and computer. From mini-computers to generation of Iphones withtouch screen facility, it was a long creative process in his life. He made computerspersonal and put the Internet in our pockets. The key in his success here is
connecting ideas from different fields and creating as much as possible based oncustomers` ambitions. “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Do not lose faith”, saidSteve. Obviously, Steve understood this clearly and deeply so he overcame hisfaith and kept him going. It was in 1985 when Steve was dismissed from Applewhich was set up by him. It was really his big shock. However , he left Apple andset up the Next computer next. He overcame his shock and continued his creationand developed his products. It freed him to enter one of the most creativeperiods of his life. In this difficult time, if someone had no passion and no skill andspirit, they could not do that. After that, when Apple was about to bankrupt,Steve returned and had a revolution. Steve really left us a big lesson from hisefforts. When we remind Steve Jobs, we not only remember his contribution andhis influence on information technology but also learn meaningful lessons fromhis life. Success is not an easy road. It is not even a straight line. On every steps,passion, creation and good energy will lead us to achieve success as Steve did. Sostart right now, in this instance, to wake on your success because “ if you live eachday as if it was your last, someday you will most certainly be right”.
