The Harvard Business Review published recently on one of its blogs a very inspired article that presents seven great business insights from Steve Jobs, the retired CEO of Apple. Here is a summary.
1. Matter. “Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugar water — or do you want to change the world?”
2. Master. “Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.”
3. Do the insanely great. “When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it.”
4. Have taste. “The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste.”
4. Build a temple. “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, 5nd 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.”
5. Don’t build a casino. “The cure for Apple is not cost-cutting. The cure for Apple is to innovate its way out of its current predicament.”
7. Don’t pander — better. “We didn’t build the Mac for anybody else. We built it for ourselves.”
