7 Things Steve Jobs Said That You Should Say Every Single Day


#1: “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”
Many individuals have outstanding ideas, but far fewer individuals turn these ideas into realities. As a result of their inaction or hesitation, they’re left with regrets rather than fond memories of success. What’s more, past success can become ongoing success more often than not.

#2: “I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
If you make an attempt to succeed but end up failing regardless, don’t be disheartened: success almost always begins with at least one failure, and most significant successes are the sum total of countless failures.

#3: “My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other, and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: Great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.”
Surround yourself with people you trust and respect, and don’t be afraid to ask for their help. A diversity of ideas strengthens the final decision or choice exponentially.

#4: “My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”
Worry about what to do with your time more than you worry about what to do with your money, and you will be richer both financially andinternally.

#5: “Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”
As mentioned, you should never give up right away, but it is perfectly OK to give up eventually, after adequate effort and persistence—especially if you’ve come up with a better idea by that point (which will usually be the case).

#6: “I didn’t return to Apple to make a fortune. I’ve been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn’t going to let it ruin my life. There’s no way you could ever spend it all, and I don’t view wealth as something that validates my intelligence.”
According to research in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, money definitely can’t buy happiness after an income of $75,000 per year has been reached: “Beyond $75,000 . . . higher income is neither the road to experience happiness nor the road to relief of unhappiness or stress.” Another perspective echoes these notions: “The materialistic drive and satisfaction with life are negatively related.”

#7: “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.”
Hear, hear! (enough said).
