N-are sens sa ne prefacem ca azi Internetul poate sa vorbeasca despre altceva. Steve Jobs a murit. Facebook-ul si Twitterul vuiesc de omagii ale necunoscutilor pentru un necunoscut. Probabil pentru ca asta inseamna sa fii un om care schimba ceva in lume.
In memoriam, dar si pentru inspiratie, va oferim cateva dintre cele mai destepte lucruri spuse de Mr. Jobs.
Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.
You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.
When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.
Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.
It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy.
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 one more thing…”, desigur.
Stay hungry, stay foolish.
