“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? So this is what we’ve chosen to do with out life.”
Every one, every activity and task we do, should be excellent. Don’t take an endeavor lightly:
- Either you are building a company or watching TV.
- Having family dinner with your friends or eating a powerbar in the car.
- Writing a book or reading a gossip magazine.
- Organizing your home or letting the compost pile up.
- Giving the postman a smile, or ignoring her.
Steve Jobs was born in San Francisco—my own “home sweet home”. He was the co-founder and CEO of Apple and was incredibly influential in the technology sector, revolutionizing how we interact with technology and computers. Although Jobs started his adulthood with little direction, he soon discovered that he could be truly excellent in the field of technology and business. After traveling the world and working for Atari, Steve Jobs founded Apple Computers with Steve Wozniak. The duo created a product and business model that allowed the average American to have access to a computer. Tragically, Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011 at 56 years old. He has left us with a legacy of hard work, creativity, and dedication to one’s goals.
