Steven „Steve“ Paul Jobs war ein US-amerikanischer Unternehmer. Als Mitgründer und langjähriger CEO von Apple Inc. gilt er als eine der bekanntesten Persönlichkeiten der Computerindustrie. Zusammen mit Steve Wozniak und Ron Wayne gründete er 1976 Apple und half, sowohl das Konzept des Heimcomputers als auch später die Generation der Smartphones sowie Tabletcomputer populär zu machen. Zudem war er mit dem Macintosh ab 1984 maßgeblich an der Einführung von Personal Computern mit grafischer Benutzeroberfläche beteiligt und entwickelte mit dem iTunes Store und dem Medienabspielgerät iPod in den frühen 2000er Jahren wichtige Meilensteine für den Markterfolg digitaler Musikdownloads. Jobs war darüber hinaus Geschäftsführer und Hauptaktionär der Pixar Animation Studios und nach einer Fusion größter Einzelaktionär der Walt Disney Company. Er starb am 5. Oktober 2011 an einer Krebserkrankung. Sein Vermögen wurde im März 2011 vom Wirtschaftsmagazin Forbes Magazine auf 8,3 Milliarden US-Dollar geschätzt.

„Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.“

„I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. It is so hard.“

— Steve Jobs
Context: I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. It is so hard. You put so much of your life into this thing. There are such rough moments in time that I think most people give up. I don't blame them. Its really tough and it consumes your life. If you've got a family and you're in the early days of a company, I can't imagine how one could do it. I'm sure its been done but its rough. Its pretty much an eighteen hour day job, seven days a week for awhile. Unless you have a lot of passion about this, you're not going to survive. You're going to give it up. So you've got to have an idea, or a problem or a wrong that you want to right that you're passionate about otherwise you're not going to have the perseverance to stick it through. I think that's half the battle right there.

„California has a sense of experimentation and a sense of openness—openness to new possibilities.“

— Steve Jobs
Context: Woz and I very much liked Bob Dylan's poetry, and we spent a lot of time thinking about a lot of that stuff. This was California. You could get LSD fresh made from Stanford. You could sleep on the beach at night with your girlfriend.

„Sometimes I believe in God, sometimes I don’t. I think it’s 50-50 maybe.“

— Steve Jobs
Context: Sometimes I believe in God, sometimes I don’t. I think it’s 50-50 maybe. But ever since I’ve had cancer, I’ve been thinking about it more. And I find myself believing a bit more. I kind of – maybe it’s ’cause I want to believe in an afterlife. That when you die, it doesn’t just all disappear. The wisdom you’ve accumulated. Somehow it lives on, but sometimes I think it’s just like an on-off switch. Click and you’re gone. And that’s why I don’t like putting on-off switches on Apple devices. Quoted by his biographer, Walter Isaacson http://www.zdnet.com/blog/btl/steve-jobs-in-the-end-he-didnt-like-the-off-switch/61586?tag=nl.e589

„And the reason they were able to do that was that they've had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people“

— Steve Jobs
Context: Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they've had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people... Unfortunately, that's too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. Interviewed with Wired: Gary Wolf. Steve Jobs: The Next Insanely Great Thing http://archive.wired.com/wired/archive/4.02/jobs_pr.html (February 1996)

„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.“

— Steve Jobs
Context: 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.

„I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.“

— Steve Jobs
Context: When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

„Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue.“

— Steve Jobs
Context: When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960's, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and Polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions. Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.
