How to Think Like Steve Jobs (2013) by Daniel Smith
A short but concise book about the amazing life of a genius: Steve Jobs. A visionary world class. Never compromising and always striving for excellence. Settling with nothing except the best and insanely great. Jobs, a man of excellent taste in technology, art, music and probably life… maybe. For sure he love keeping things simple as possible but remarkable. Held more than 300 patents under his name and in group.
I particularly love the dedicated section of this book in which the author has mentioned about specific details like Steve's mentors, books, his past works and so on. This book is divided into 2 parts: #1 Get to the top, and #2 Stay at the top. A peek at Steve bookshelf is confirming that he was a highly spiritual and diet conscious. He can be an ‘asshole’ sometimes, but compare to his great achievements… I say, his assholeness can be discounted. An excellent Entrepreneur. One of our greatest modern innovators. He called himself a discoverer. Steve Jobs is one of my favourite persons.
Some of his great quotes in this book:
“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.”
"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.”
“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's 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.”
Simple, good book
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
