  3. 3. Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955, in the city of SanFrancisco. His biological mother was either an unwedgraduate student named Joanne Simpson, and his biologicalfather was a political science or mathematics professor, anative Syrian named Abdulfattah John Jandali. Being bornout of wedlock in the puritan America of the 1950s, the babywas put up for adoption. Joanne had a college education, andshe insisted that the future parents of her boy be just as welleducated. Unfortunately, the candidates, Paul and Clara Jobs,did not meet her expectations: they were a lower-middle classcouple that had settled in the Bay Area after the war. Paulwas a machinist from the Midwest who had not evengraduated from high school. In the end, Joanne agreed to haveher baby adopted by them, under the firm condition that theylater send him to college.Paul and Clara called their sonSteven Paul. While Steve was still a toddler, the couple movedto the Santa Clara county, later to be known as Silicon Valley.They adopted another baby, a girl called Patti, three yearslater in 1958.

  4. 4. Steve was quite a turbulent child. He really didn‘t care aboutschool for some time — until he reached the 4th grade, andhad Imogene ―Teddy‖ Hill as a teacher.She was one of the saints of my life. She taught an advancedfourth grade class, and it took her about a month to get hip tomy situation. She bribed me into learning.She did bribe him, with candy and $5 bills from her ownmoney. He quickly became hooked — so much so that heskipped the 5th grade and went straight to middle school,namely Crittenden Middle School. It was in a poor area. Mostkids did not work much there, they were rather fond ofbullying other kids, such as the young Steve.One day he came home and declared that if he wasn‘ttransferred to another school, he would stop going to schoolaltogether. He was 11. Paul and Clara complied, and the Jobsesmoved to the cozier city of Los Altos, so that Steve could go toCupertino Junior High. This proved to be decisive for Steve‘sfuture.

  5. 5. Palo Alto homeAddress2101 Waverley Street,Palo Alto, CA 94301.Steve bought his Palo Alto home in the mid-1990s, after hismarriage with Laurene Powell. The house is the Britishcountry style, it fits beautifully with the rest of this quietneighborhood — and certainly does not stand out as the houseof a high-tech/media mogul. From people who have seen it, thehouse is lightly furnished, but much more so than Steves bareWoodside mansion during his bachelor days. Steve lived inthis house for twenty years, and died there on October 5, 2011,surrounded by his family. Para college of business Administration copyright c
  6. 6. Private jetSteve Jobss private jet was offered to him by the Apple boardwhen he officially became the companys CEO, in January2000. It is a Gulfstream V Jet, worth over $40 million (totalcost for Apple: $88 million). The 2009 SEC investigationrevealed that "He brought up the idea: What I really need is aplane where I can take my family to Hawaii on vacation, goto the East Coast. and the board agreed". Larry Ellisonsupposedly declared, "With what hes done, we ought to givehim five airplanes!"Steve reportedly worked hard on customizing his airplane, forover a year. According to Isaacsons biography, he usedEllisons plane as a starting point and made a number ofimprovements, such as changing the polished stainless steel ofthe buttons to replace them with brushed metal ones. "I look athis airplane and mine, and everything he changed wasbetter," said Ellison in the book. Para college of business Administration copyright c
  7. 7. 5 Keys To Success From Steve Jobs “Your time is limited. Don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is livingthe result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drowned your own inner voice. And, most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.”You’re Running Out of Time – Use It WiselySteve Jobs channels Buddhist monks from all over the worldfor this piece of advice. We barely ever really think about howlittle time we have on this planet. That within a blink of aneye everything could be gone.The Buddha recognized this factand used it as one of his motivations for enlightenment.Don‘twait for tomorrow because tomorrow may never come.Startright now, in this instance, to work on your success.Dreamingof it. Crafting it. Creating it.Don‘t wait for the kids to go off tocollege, the stars to align, or until everything is just right. Para college of business Administration copyright c
  8. 8. Don’t Live Someone Else’s LifeIf you truly buy into Steve‘s first key to success. Or you‘verecently had tea with the Dalai Lama and he swayed you tothe dark side of realizing that we all have a fixed amount oftime, then why would you waste it living someone else‘slife.You‘ve got dreams of your own. They may have beenbeaten into silence, but you know they‘re still there. Waitingpatiently for you to remember them. To nurture them. Andhave the courage to share them with the world.Break Free From DogmaAccording to wikipedia: ―Dogma is the established belief ordoctrine held by a religion, ideology or any kind oforganization: it is authoritative and not to be disputed.‖I don‘t mean to come back to Buddha, but he had this to sayabout Dogma, ―Believe nothing, no matter where you read it,or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees withyour own reason and your own common sense.‖Is Steve Jobs Buddhist?He seems to be really channeling him so far.Have the courage to be yourself.What are your dreams?What do you want?What make YOU happy?Dive deep into the mystery and miracle of who you are.There‘s never going to be another person like you on the faceof this planet. EVER. Para college of business Administration copyright c
  9. 9. Ignore Other People’s OpinionsAbraham Maslow said that the happiest people are the onesthat are, ―Oblivious of the good opinions of others.‖Now I don‘t think Mr. Jobs is saying to steer clear of wisecouncil. It‘s good to have other people perspective on things.And I‘m sure that apple has a lot of geniuses, clairvoyantsand witch doctors to help Mr. Jobs divine the future.But there‘s a lot of people out there who will tell you that itcan‘t be done. Or you‘re not the right person for the job. Orsome other form of baloney.Thank them for their concern andkeep pressing on with your dreams.Listen and ask for theopinions of people who have more experience than you. Butkeep far away from dream stealer‘s. Para college of business Administration copyright c
  10. 10. Follow Your HeartSo often we choose to ignore the ―still small voice within.‖ Weget that gut feeling. We know something is up.We hear our dreams calling out to us but for whatever reasonwe suppress them, ignore them, and shove them down deepinside.Maybe we‘re trying to keep up with Jones‘. Maybe we buyinto the ―get a good job, keep your head down, and work hard‖story they sell us in school.Whatever the reason the truth is when we stuff those dreamsaway and lock them deep within our hearts we suffer.Silently we ache. An agony most of us take quietly to ourgraves.The only cure is to dream again. To follow our hearts. To gowhere life is calling you. To run through fields of wide openpossibility.A quote I love and have adapted slightly from FrederickBuechner is, ―Success is found through marrying the worldsdeep hunger with your hearts deep gladness.‖It‘s no wonder that Steve Jobs has been successful.So what do you want to be successful at?Ian – Your Success Wingman Some nice Steve jobs quote- Para college of business Administration copyright c
  11. 11. "Being the richest man in the cometary doesnt matter to me, going to bed at night saying we have done something wonderful,thats what matter to me" "For the past 33 years,I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself,"If today were the last day of my life,would i want to do what i am about to do today and whenever the answer has been no for many days in a row i know i need to change something" "Your time is, so dont waste it living someone Elses life.dont be trapped by dogma.which is living with the resultof other peoples thinking.Dont let the noise of others opinion drown out your inner voice and most important have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" "Your work is going to fill a target part of your life andthe only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe isgreat work and the only way to do great work is to love what you do.If you havent find yet keep looking.Dont all with matters of the heart,you will know when you find it."Jobs and Apple Para college of business Administration copyright c
  12. 12. At 20, he and a friend (Steve Wozniak) started a company ina garage on April 1, 1976. Later that year, the duo debuted theApple I at the Homebrew Computer Club in Palo Alto,California. A local store offered to buy 50 machines and tofinance the production, the duo had to sell their mostexpensive possesions. Jobs sold his Volkswagen van whileWozniak sold his Hewlett-Packard scientific calculator.Jobs named their company – Apple in memory of a happysummer he had spent as an orchard worker in Oregon.By 1982 however, his company sales sagged in the face ofcompetition from IBM‘s new PC. Jobs and Wozniak unveiledtheir new creation, Lisa to increase the company‘s bottom line,only to be another expensive failure.Not wanting to dwell on these successive failures, they workedon a new machine called the Macintosh. Jobs was reported tocommandeered the project, ruthlessly pushing its computerengineers and flying a pirate flag above the building wherethe team worked.By 1986 the Mac, which Jobs promised to be ‗insanely great‘•was a huge success. After 10 years, starting from 2 kidsworking in a garage, Apple computer had grown into a $2billion dollar company with over 4000 employees.At 30 Jobs, however, was fired from the company he co-founded with Steve Wozniak. He left the company after losinga bitter battle over control with Apple‘s CEO John Sculley(whom Jobs had recruited from Pepsi Cola).Steve Jobs’ Contributions to the World Para college of business Administration copyright c
  13. 13. Steve Jobs was one of the greatest technological minds of ourtime and progressed, not only the U.S., but the entire worldfurther than anyone could ever have imagined. Co-Founderand former CEO of Apple Corp., he will always remain a hugepart of History. He passed away from pancreatic cancer atthe age of 56 but his legacy will live on through his inventions.Jobss revival and leadership of Apple will go down as one ofthe great examples of individual corporate leadership of the20th (and likely the 21st century). The heroic tale of a singlecreative mind rescuing a brand, creating thousands of jobs,and bestowing wealth on employees in the midst of aturbulent era is an irresistible one.Ask several people to name what they think Steve Jobs‘ biggestcontribution has been, and you will get a variety of responses.Sure, he has brought us some amazing innovations, andmillions of us own (or want to own) them. There‘s the iPod, theiPad, and the i-everything else!But when you get down to it, it really wasn‘t Jobs who did italone—it was his team. But Steve did do one thing that starteda positive trend that will last for decades or longer. And thatcontribution is so big, so important, that by some divineguidance it was inserted into his name. Steve created jobs.And lots of them. Pancreatic Cancer Para college of business Administration copyright c
  14. 14. In 2003, Jobs discovered that he had a neuroendocrine tumor,a rare but operable form of pancreatic cancer. Instead ofimmediately opting for surgery, Jobs chose to alter hispescovegetarian diet while weighing Eastern treatmentoptions. For nine months Jobs postponed surgery, makingApples board of directors nervous. Executives feared thatshareholders would pull their stocks if word got out that theirCEO was ill. But in the end, Jobss confidentiality tookprecedence over shareholder disclosure. In 2004, he had asuccessful surgery to remove the pancreatic tumor. True toform, in subsequent years, Jobs disclosed little about his health.Personal LifeEarly in 2009, reports circulated about Jobss weight loss, somepredicting his health issues had returned, which included aliver transplant. Jobs had responded to these concerns bystating he was dealing with a hormone imbalance. Afternearly a year out of the spotlight, Steve Jobs delivered akeynote address at an invite-only Apple event September 9,2009.In respect to his personal life, Steve Jobs remained a privateman who rarely discloses information about his family. Whatis known is Jobs fathered a daughter with girlfriend ChrisannBrennan when he was 23. Jobs denied paternity of hisdaughter Lisa in court documents, claiming he was sterile.Jobs did not initiate a relationship with his daughter until shewas 7 but, when she was a teenager, she came to live with herfather.Final Years Para college of business Administration copyright c
