Steve Jobs advice quotes

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.

Steve Jobs




 "I was worth
over $1,000,000
when I was 23,
and over $10,000,000
when I was 24,
and over $100,000,000
when I was 25,
and it wasn’t that important because
I never did it for the money."

~ Steve Jobs >>>

Steve Jobs advice quotes

Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

Steve Jobs










Ask for feedback

Ask for feedback from people with diverse backgrounds. Each one will tell you one useful thing. If you're at the top of the chain, sometimes people won't give you honest feedback because they're afraid. In this case, disguise yourself, or get feedback from other sources. Focus on those who will use your product – listen to your customers first.  >>>



Innovation distinguishes a leader from a follower. Delegate, let other top executives do 50% of your routine work to be able to spend 50% your time on the new stuff. Say no to 1,000 things to make sure you don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. Concentrate on really important creations and radical innovation. Hire people who want to make the best things in the world. You need a very product-oriented culture, even in a technology company. Lots of companies have tons of great engineers and smart people. But ultimately, there needs to be some gravitational force that pulls it all together.  >>>




Learn from failures

Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations >>>


Learn continually

There's always "one more thing" to learn! Cross-pollinate ideas with others both within and outside your company. Learn from customers, competitors and partners. If you partner with someone whom you don't like, learn to like them – praise them and benefit from them. Learn to criticize your enemies openly, but honestly.  >>>
