12 Inspiring Quotes from Steve Jobs That Enrich your Day

12 Inspiring Quotes from Steve Jobs That Enrich your Day

We all have days where we just feel miserable about our lives. We are confused about what we want to achieve, then we start to doubt whether we are on the right track towards our goals and challenge our own ability and belief. It doesn’t mean that we are weak. It’s completely normal because even the most successful people in the world need motivation.

It’s always nice to get inspiration from well-known successful people when we feel unsure about our lives. Taking reference from their personal stories and life mottos doesn’t only motivate us but also giving us valuable insight on how to live our lives in a better way.

I am sure no one will challenge me for saying Steve Job is one of the all-time legends in the 21st century.

Steve Jobs was not just a visionary genius, but a man with an incredible passion for innovation, and a man who changed the world as we knew it. His lust for life was so huge that he used to look at his reflection in the mirror each morning and say to himself:

“If today was the last day of my life would I want to do what I’m about to do today?”

What an inspiring way to start the day – and a great way to make sure you’re living in the moment and striving to live a life with meaning and purpose.

No one can accuse Steve Jobs of being unproductive or lazy that’s for sure!  He founded the world-famous animation company Pixar, brought computer giant Apple back to life even after being fired in 1985 and fought a debilitating battle with pancreatic cancer, a battle that after 9 years, he sadly lost in 2011.

What I love about Steve Jobs was his unnerving belief in ‘doing what you love’. This inspiring quote really resonates with me and inspires me every day to get up and do something meaningful with my life. I believe we can learn a lot from Steve Jobs and so here is a collection of my favorite and most insightful Steve Jobs inspiring quotes. I hope they inspire you as much as they have inspired me to ‘think differently’ over the years.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish

Steve Jobs

    Quality is much better than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.

      Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.

      Steve Jobs

         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.

        Steve Jobs

          That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.

            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.

            Steve Jobs

              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.

              Steve Jobs

                Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

                  The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

                  Steve Jobs

                    The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

                    Steve Jobs

                      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.

                      Steve Jobs

                        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.

                          8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                          8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                          We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                          On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                          Advertising

                          Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                          1. Smart Door Locks

                          A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                          2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                          Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                          3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                          If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                          4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                          These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                          5. Nest Thermostat

                          This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                          6. Smart Lighting

                          Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                          7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                          Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                          8. Canary

                          This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
