“There will never be another Steve Jobs. We can’t be the special person he was. We are
who we are and just have to appreciate how great he was.” — Larry Ellison
When we examine how great Steve Jobs was, we are able to gain a lot of insights which
provide us with invaluable life lessons. Here are 10 useful lessons we can learn
Steve Jobs (1955-2011).
1. Love what you do
Steve Jobs loved what he did with a passion. Even after he was fired from Apple in the
early years, he realized that this was what he really wanted to do in life. We too should
not deflect from our path — our persistence will pay off.
“What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating, I even
thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me
— I still loved what I did. And so I decided to start over.” — Steve Jobs
Bozos are incompetent, stupid, and negative people. Steve Jobs had no time for these
people and got rid of them when he could. They are like weeds and they will also hire
like-minded people. They will have a negative impact on morale. Even if you are unable
to fire them, you can make strenuous efforts to have as little to do with them as possible.
Surround yourself with positive and upbeat colleagues who will inspire you.
Don’t be afraid to take risks
Steve jobs knew that by developing the iPhone, he was going to make the iPod obsolete.
He knew that it was a risk but he also knew that the mobile market was very lucrative
and he wanted a slice of that. Being brave and going against the tide are all part of taking
The lesson taught by Jobs
was that other people’s opinions and “rules” must never
thwart our plans.
Here is the famous saying by Steve J.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped
by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let
the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most
important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” — Steve Jobs
4. Qualifications are not everything
Steve Jobs never actually graduated from college. He discovered and taught us that what
really counts is to have a positive mindset and how you nurture your skills. Paper
qualifications are important, but they must always take second place in developing our
“Truth be told, I never graduated from college. And this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to
a college graduation.” – Steve Jobs,
Stanford Commencement Address in 2005
Jobs wanted to change the world and put a “ding in the universe,” as he himself put it.
His projects were all designed to create amazing products to make the world a better
place. Making money was not his primary aim. Here is a very
valuable life lesson.
focus on making profit without worrying too much about giving value or in helping
society, then perhaps we should rethink our objectives.
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me… Going to bed at
night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.” —
6. Learn to be bold
At the age of 12, Steve Jobs telephoned Hewlett Packard to get some spare parts he
needed for a project he was working on. As a result of that telephone call, HP gave him a
summer job and he never looked back. The lesson we can learn here is to always try,
even if we are turned down.
“If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no.” – Nora Roberts
