Finally finished reading the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson; cover to cover. This book is long and took some time to work through, but its information has already proved to be valuable in conducting business at RRP. Steve Jobs and company created and innovated at the intersection of arts and science, and in doing so changed the world. Jobs got it right and credited his success more to brutal honesty than to reality distortion. Might update this post later, but for now, Jobs would agree to keep moving forward.

Steve Jobs is one of the few people I considered asking to be a mentor. Unfortunately I came up with the idea too late and never had the opportunity to meet him. Bong RIP Steve Jobs. You’re a True OG in my iBook. Thanks for the technology.

Some inspirational quotes:

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

“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 other’s 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.”
