Steve Jobs is an inspiration to others who want to improve the world.
Jobs followed the secret to work and life revealed thousands of years ago by Confucius.
Confucius said: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Jobs discovered what he loved to do; he knew it and he pursued his passions until the end. How did Steve Jobs discover and clarify his passions so well. He engaged his own business coach for years, Bill Campbell, to assist Jobs to keep unraveling the mysteries within himself and to stay on track.
Jobs revealed his secret to success and enjoyment.
In a 2005 commencement address at Stanford University, he divulged
his work philosophy:
“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. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep
looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
Jobs created Apple and other companies to fulfill his passions.
He loved creating devices and systems to enhance the
productivity and enjoyment of others. Yet, along the way he resigned from Apple
as the CEO of Apple due to politics and a power grab. He continued his pursuit
of his passions by creating “NEXT” and then bought “Pixar” for a song and
developed it into a great success.
Apple wised up and asked Jobs to return after Apple.
Without Jobs, Apple had declined to the brink of bankruptcy,
and the board desperately needed Jobs to return. He agreed, but did not settle.
He demanded and got his own terms to develop Apple the way he wanted. Jobs
changed the world through the many innovative products and services Apple
created, developed and enhanced. During this time Apple introduced the iPod,
iPad, iTunes, iMac and others. Jobs created his wonderful life and enhanced the
lives of others all because he knew continued to pursue what he loved that was
creating great products, and he did not settle.
Anyone can create his or her own successful life path, like Jobs
Discovering what you love to do and pursuing your passions are just
as available to you as they were with Steve Jobs.
He did it and kept on track with the help of his business coach. If Steve Jobs, one of the most successful people in the last 25 years used a business coach then there is nothing preventing others from engaging their own business coach and reach their potential and enjoy the trip as well. Confucius gave great advice. Jobs used a business coach to execute and live the advice of Confucius. Confucius and Jobs, two very impressive winners to follow.
