Steve Jobs: 5 Things We Miss Most

Let's take a moment to remember the work and ideas of the late Steve Jobs, who would have turned 60 today.

His quotes
'A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.' 'Did Alexander Graham Bell do any market research before he invented the telephone?' 'Innovation is saying no to a thousand things.' 'I want to put a ding in the universe.'
This is just a tiny sample of the many quotes from Steve Jobs that continue to be repeated today. The man could make people think.

@Li I agree with you, when you stretch yourself you would know your exact capacity. This will help them to be more innovative and productive.

Let me add one cent to your point, my friend - one way to discover your strength is trying different things, especially stretch yourself.:-)

Re: Team work VS ......
@vnewman2,

I remember a client telling me once that small businesses power the economy, not the huge enterprises we're all familiar with. Think of the people that work for smaller orgamizations that deal with bosses worse than Jobs & no one will ever know their name nor care who they are. I guess the hope is that their output is just as great, if not better.

It is important to give more value for people with innovative ideas. This will motivate them for more and more innovations.

Re: Team work VS ......
@sunita. You are correct, most of them focus on their own performance. At the end of the day, if they can get their promotion and the increment they are fine. I think this bad for the organization.

Re: Team work VS ......
@nemos. I agree with you. Most of the organizations focus on individual performance than team work. This has destroyed the creativity of them.

This is an interesting article. We will not know our capabilities until someone shows them to us. Therefore it is important to understand our strengths.

> Brilliant man with depth. He died too young.

@freespirit: Before he turned 60, he disrputed six industries: music, publishing, software distribution, phones, cartoon animations.

I wonder what he would have disrputed more had he been alive?

My favorite Steve Jobs quote: "The only way to do great work is to love what you do." Brilliant man with depth. He died too young.

Re: Team work VS ......
True, because on the other hand, you have to consider all the people who worked for intense, overly-demanding bosses and the company failed.  You don't read about those cinderella stories.  Apple and Jobs were definitely an exception to the norm.
