Your Time is Limited

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life." - Steve Jobs

Steven Paul Jobs ( 2/24/55 – 10/5/11) co-founder of Apple computers was well known as an idiosyncratic and individualistic who emphasized the importance of design and aesthetics to drive forward the development of products that were both functional and elegant. He is listed as either primary inventor or co-inventor in over 230 awarded patents or patent applications related to a range of technologies from actual computer and portable devices to user interfaces (including touch-based), speakers, keyboards, power adapters, and packages.

For your motivation and inspiration ,here are a handful of quotes from Jobs who once said, “One way to remember who you are is to remember who your heroes are.” Following the quotes is a video of one of his most famous speeches.
“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”

"Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. ... Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful -- that's what matters to me."

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

"My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to make them better."

"People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I'm actually as proud of the things we haven't done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things."

"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."

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life" is an often quoted line from  Steve Jobs' famous 2005 commencement speech at Stanford, the source of some of his most inspiring quotes.
