Remembering Steve Jobs

This week brought with it the sad news of the death of Apple’s legendary and visionary co-founder, Steve Jobs. Jobs was—and will always be remembered as—a highly innovative and compassionate person, whose work and words will continue to motivate people for years to come. We think President Obama said it best when he said: “There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”

In memoriam, the DGC team wants to share some of their favorite inspirational Steve Jobs quotes:

·         “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

·         “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. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

·         “Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.

·         “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

·         “We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.”

·         “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
