Apple cofounder and former CEO Steve Jobs has a tremendous legacy.
He’s remembered for his obsessive commitment to quality (sometimes to the point of ruthlessness), incredible success, and vision.
Today would have been his 61st birthday.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some of his most thought-provoking or motivational words.
“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.”
“It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.”
“That’s 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.”
