I hate Steve Jobs. I mean he got the whole world addicted to iPods, iPhones, iPads… And before that were movies from Pixar like the hugely popular Toy Story., Macintosh, etc… Why must he be the trend setter that really draw whirlpool of attractions? Not to mention the subsequent copycats, which then kind of force us to change our lifestyles. Remember the impact of smart phones, the era of no more hand-drawn animations? Sure you’ll say, “but I don’t use smart phone” or “I prefer the old-fashioned Disney animations”, but you can’t deny Steve’s visions had indefinitely altered the landscape of informative technology.
Inspiring characters often have unusual beginnings. Same goes to Steve Jobs. But the more flattering part of his personality that impresses me is his courage to materialize his visions. All of us have dreams in some point of our lives. But how many of us take action to implement it and make sure it becomes success? Ask yourself, what happen to your dream that you set to achieve by 30 years old? Have you done anything about it yet?
Someone liken Steve Jobs to Thomas Edison in their era, making futuristic technologies available to all. I’m sure their success is nothing short of enormous courage and determination. Sometimes I really wonder how these guys come up with visions ahead of their times. Had they foreseen the impact of their creations? Changing lives of others is not a small feat. I can’t help but admire them.
Steve Jobs came across as a simplistic man with very bland taste for fashion. But I was more drawn to Apple’s product launch. The mysterious fog, the anticipations that make Apple fans hungry prior to every single product launch really are successful business case studies. Have you learned a trick of two?
Steve Jobs Video
During one of his public lectures (which I’m sure you would have seen it by now), Steve Jobs mentioned about listening to your heart, do things you are passionate about. I know, almost every other successful men had said that before. Everyone measures success differently, monetary, spiritually or social recognition, etc… Turning your passion into money-making-vehicle is not a new concept at all. Some exceptional persons like Steve Jobs stuck to it had succeeded. Hence, what is stopping you from doing so? Below is the video if you haven’t watched it:
Yes, I do hate Steve Jobs. I hate him for being God-like to his avid fans. I hate him for being so good at what he did, that I aspire to be like him one day. Life is too short to stay hesitating. I’m ready to take some serious actions today, what about you?
