Think Different - Steve Jobs

Because of my dearest husband I got to be a Apple religious fan. These days I can't live, communicate, blog, work and even create, without my 3 friends MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad. I herewith confess my addition.

Steve Jobs was the great genius mind behind all these, and he was among the greatest American Innovators . He had a keen sense of design that made successive products from the Macintosh to iPad and iPhone all successful. The world lost him today but he left us an enormous legacy.Here are some of my favourite quotes from his Stanford University speech.

Por causa do meu querido marido tornei-me numa fâ incondicional da Apple. Hoje em dia mal consigo viver, comunicar, blogar, trabalhar e até criar, sem a ajuda preciosa dos meus 3 melhor amigos no trabalho, o MacBook Pro, iphone e iPad. Eu aqui, confesso a minha dependência.

Steve Jobs foi a grande mente por trás de todos eles e é sem dúvida, um dos maiores inovadores americanos. Tinha um grande sentido estético e de design e que tornou os seus produtos todos os bem sucedidos. O mundo perdeu Steve Jobs hoje, mas ele nos deixou um legado enorme. Aqui ficam algumas das suas frases mais marcantes, do conhecido discurso na faculdade de Stanford.



"...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..."

“You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. 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.” Steve Jobs
