Apple – a synonym for innovation. But how did it all start out? How did Steve Jobs’ genius mind get fired up? How in the world did this mind-blowing brand end up in every household, making its way up the ladder kicking any and every competitor off the market? It’s a story. A story with a bunch of ups and downs that portray how Jobs never really had a grand plan to begin with. As a matter of fact, he had to go through India, Buddhism, psychedelic use, attempts to become an astronaut and start a computer company in the Soviet Union before he got to Apple.
But however complicated his life-story might have been, Jobs still found that magic inspiration and creativity that motivated him to launch the world’s largest and most innovative tech-empire.
You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. 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. Don’t settle. – Steve Jobs
