Quote: Steve Jobs

Feb 19

“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.” — Steve Jobs

Quote: Steve Jobs

Jun 21

“When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you’re life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.” — Steve Jobs

Although the broad outlines of Steve Jobs’s struggle with pancreatic cancer are known, a new biography by Walter Isaacson offers new insight and details. Friends, family members and physicians spoke to Mr. Isaacson openly about Mr. Jobs’s illness and his shifting strategy for managing it. According to Mr. Isaacson, Mr. Jobs was one of 20 people in the world to have all the genes of his cancer tumor and his normal DNA sequenced. The price tag at the time: $100,000. But the 630-page biography spans Mr. Jobs’s entire life, and also includes previously unknown details about his romantic life, his marriage, his relationship with his sister and his business dealings. Mr. Isaacson conducted more than 40 interviews over two years with Mr. Jobs, who died on Oct. 5…

A Sister’s Eulogy For Steve Jobs

A Sister’s Eulogy For Steve Jobs

Oct 30

I grew up as an only child, with a single mother. Because we were poor and because I knew my father had emigrated from Syria, I imagined he looked like Omar Sharif. I hoped he would be rich and kind and would come into our lives (and our not yet furnished apartment) and help us. Later, after I’d met my father, I tried to believe he’d changed his number and left no forwarding address because he was an idealistic revolutionary, plotting a new world for the Arab people. Even as a feminist, my whole life I’d been waiting for a man to love, who could love me. For decades, I’d thought that man would be my father. When I was 25, I met that man and he was my brother…

Steve Jobs: Imitated, Never Duplicated (Updated)

Oct 18

Here’s a guy who never finished college, never went to business school, never worked for anyone else a day in his adult life. So how did he become the visionary who changed every business he touched? Actually, he’s given us clues all along. Remember the “Think Different” ad campaign he introduced upon his return to Apple in 1997? “Here’s to the crazy ones. The rebels. The troublemakers. The ones who see things differently. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.” In other words, the story of Steve Jobs boils down to this: Don’t go with the flow…

Quote: Steve Jobs

Sep 22

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. 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…. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.” — Steve Jobs, from his commencement speech to the graduates of Stanford University in 2005

New Book: ‘Stop Worrying! There Probably Is An Afterlife’

Jan 03

Did Steve Jobs have a vision of the afterlife on his death-bed? Does quantum physics suggest that our mind might survive the physical death of our body? How do some near-death experiencers “see” outside of their bodies at a time when they are supposed to be dead? In “Stop Worrying! There Probably is an Afterlife”, author Greg Taylor covers all these questions and more. From Victorian seance rooms through to modern scientific laboratories, Taylor surveys the fascinating history of research into the survival of human consciousness, and returns with a stunning conclusion: that maybe we should stop worrying so much about death, because there probably is an afterlife…

How Apple & Google Are Like Sparta & Athens

How Apple & Google Are Like Sparta & Athens

Jun 13

The reason is that Google and Apple are the Athens and Sparta of the tech industry. It’s in the DNA of both companies to rule the tech world. They will battle each other for supremacy and, in the process, greatly diminish each other’s power and reach. United, they could accomplish anything. But they will not be united. They will become increasingly divided. It’s a Greek tragedy unfolding before our very eyes…

Alex Pino writes: “I like small and tiny houses because they offer us the freedom to live life how we want. For me, it’s all about less clutter/stuff, and more freedom/choices. Would you be willing to agree on that? You can choose to spend more time with your family, do the work you love, and have enough money left over to enjoy life with the people you love. Although more and more people are choosing to live this way, it’s not usually the most popular way to go about life in the everyday world. So here are three tips on how to deal with people who don’t agree with your lifestyle choices…”
