REMEMBERING STEVE JOBS

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

 

 

STEVE JOBS

Born February 24, 1955, San Francisco, CA

Co-Founder of Apple Computer (Apple)

His memory lives on throughout eternity

 

 

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone elses 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

 

When I think about what Steve said, I can't help but think about how many people are trapped living out what other people expected them to do, living up to their expectations, failing to following their own passions, or having the courage to completely enjoy their life in fear of what others will think, say, and do. ---Patricia Feager

 

 

 

"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. And 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." ---Steve Jobs

 

When was the last time you really got excited about something that really made you happy? If you take a moment to reflect, I am sure you can think of something. Something we learned about Steve is he learned early on to be himself. He never disguised himself as what others projected him to be. He demonstrated on many occasions you can pull yourself up by the bootstraps and start over again. ---Patricia Feager

 

"Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them." ---Steve Jobs

 

When was the last time you or someone you knew felt intimidated by technology? Why is it harder for some to ask for help than others? It is important to believe there are good people who are always willing to help and it doesn't mean they are smarter than you, they are just like tools you need in life to accomplish your goal.---Patricia Feager

 

"It's not a faith in technology. It's faith in people." ---Steve Jobs

 

When you think about it, all technology is composed of parts. Humans are too. We have a brain, a heart, a head, and there's something within you that tells you your gut is always right. Isn't it odd how sometimes you meet people in life who have more faith in others, things, and technology than in themselves? If Steve was right, than you have to believe in yourself first and foremost - after all, you are people too. ---Patricia Feager

 

"Great things in business are never done by one person. They're done by a team of people.   ---Steve Jobs

 

When you take time to think about it, even people you do research, read a lot, watch YouTube Videos, spend hours searching the Internet, looking through or taking notes, finding materials, making reference to books, etc., are really gathering information from various teams of people. Customers, clients, consultants, companies, competitors all may have valuable insights and information. They really are part of the team.                ---Patricia Feager

Francine Viola - What a nice compliment! Thank you, so much!

Steve Jobs opened up a new world of creativity beyond the paintbrush of an Artist! His mind was in control of his actions that became a phenomenal success. Failures were many; he never gave up. When we look back at our lives, we can think how lucky we were to have lived in a time of technology and knowledge not afforded to the many generations that came before us. 

I hope you have an extraordinary day!

Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor e-Pro, CRS, RCS-D, Vets - LaJolla is such a great place! I enjoyed reading your background about growing up in the land of plenty of inspiration, innovation, and fun! 

I remember the Radio Shack TRS80! What fun memories! Oh, yes, the cost of computers were so expensive back then!!! Come to think of it, without Amazon or Best Buy, I don't think many consumers shopped and compared or had any inkling about whether or not they were getting a good deal. I just remember from what I learned from my mother. If the store put something on sale, you were getting a deal. And if the store offered a Midnight Blue Light Sale - she was there at midnight! LOL

Things sure have changed a lot in our lifetime!

Mike Frazier - Talk about "ambition and a willingness to work hard," he championed that idea! I loved the story about how Steve Jobs cold called Bill Hewlett at HP for parts and landed up with an Internship! Personally, I think the Recruiting World has made it more difficult than it should be for people to get jobs. Today, the focus is more on getting the perfect resume to the right person in HR rather than on demonstrating creativity and true ambition.

Thanks, Mike! I appreciate your comment very much.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - Those of us who were fortunate enough to be alive during Steve Jobs lifetime can clearly acknowledge that a "real visionary" is one who does fulfill his life's purpose, despite challenges, failures, obstacles, status, and wealth. Few are chosen; very few fulfill their purpose. Steve Jobs was one to be acknowledged and recognized.

Patricia Kennedy - it's wonderful to hear from you again! I'm glad to hear that you appreciated this blog post.

Steve Jobs was brilliant! Few people say they want to make a difference and do just that. But I have a feeling, Steve didn't have to say it, he just did it in the amount of time he had on earth. When you think about it, he was a Global Gift to the World!

Mary Hutchison, SRES, ABR - It is such a pleasure to hear from you and hear your thoughts. You are an inspiration yourself! 

Steve Jobs was a man who grew up fast marching to the beat of his own drum. He showed the world what not quitting can do for you and the impact it can have on others.

For whatever complaints some people had against him, Steve Jobs brought out creative skills and achievements by other people which only a few true leaders ever can -- and accomplishments they never imagined they could achieve.

That advice to keep looking for what you love as a life work is profoundly important.  It may make for a difficult journey, but one which offers the deepest reward possible while navigating it to success.

Young people who seek advice about how to make their own best journey can never hope to receive better than what Steve Jobs told them: "Don't settle."

Bud Hovell - Steve wasn't perfect. Perhaps we should all think twice before striving for perfection. Failure is what made him even greater. He left a legacy!
