Steve Jobs Resigns As Apple CEO

Comments Off on Steve Jobs Resigns As Apple CEO

I have a premonitions while I write something about the Apple CEO’s book entitled: Steve Jobs, I even got to kid on my intro –“Looks like Steve will be soon marching out Apple’s office(we kid) since his biography book will soon be available earlier that its expected March 6, 2012 launch.” Ooh, and it did happen as yesterday Steve Jobs has been making big whale on Twitter, threaded every minute on Facebook and headlines on all tech-news website I have been reading on –It is an end of an era, Steve Jobs resigns as Apple CEO.

After reading few articles about Steve and seeing hundred of comments, I felt how emotional every one on this matter. My eyes even got a dust of appreciation when I read Om Malik’s article as he “A few years ago, I compared Steve to Howard Hughes using the line, “Some men dream the future. He built it.” and take a deep wisdom intake for his simple words on his famous quotes compiled by WSJ, that will make you think, that’s reality.

Here are few remarkable quotes from Steve, notice this is something out of technology as he was known for.

“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. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]


“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. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]


“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.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]


“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.


“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. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” [Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]

I just hope that there’s no serious health reasons why Steve Jobs need to step down as Apple CEO, it’s acceptable that he wants time for his family. Let just see how Apple will continue to move forward connecting the dots as Steve visions it.
