Steve Jobs quotes to get you out any funk

Time is of the essence

“My favourite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.”

“Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent.”

Steve Jobs quotes - Compelo

What’s your passion?

“[The] only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

“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.”

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.”

Think further than the box

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

“It’s better to be a pirate than to join the navy.”

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes.”

The secret to great business

“That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.”

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

“You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down.”

And to the entrepreneurs out there

“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. It is so hard. You put so much of your life into this thing. There are such rough moments in time that I think most people give up. I don’t blame them.”
