‘’The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do.’’
Steven Paul "Steve" Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) was an American information technology entrepreneur and inventor. If you want to learn how to get the most out of your life, there isn't a much better teacher than Steve Jobs, who appeared to pack several lifetimes, never mind several careers, into his 56 years on our planet.
After high school, Jobs enrolled at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Lacking direction, he dropped out of college after six months and spent the next 18 months dropping in on creative classes at the school. Jobs later recounted how one course in calligraphy developed his love of typography.
In 1974, Jobs took a position as a video game designer with Atari. Several months later he left the company to find spiritual enlightenment in India, traveling further and experimenting with psychedelic drugs. In 1976, when Jobs was just 21, he and Wozniak started Apple Computer. The duo started in the Jobs family garage, funding their entrepreneurial venture by Jobs selling his Volkswagen bus and Wozniak selling his beloved scientific calculator. Jobs and Wozniak are credited with revolutionizing the computer industry by democratizing the technology and making machines smaller, cheaper, intuitive and accessible to everyday consumers.
"I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out," Jobs said. "And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made."
Don't let anything drown out your inner voice.
Knowing your time in life is limited. “think carefully about how to spend it, don't waste it living someone else's life," he said. "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.
You somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."Steve jobs was a very inspiring and enthusiastic man. Jobs knew better than anyone how to get the most out of life.
