After an incredible evening of poetry at the Seattle Arts & Lecture Series with poet Dorianne Laux and so much laughter with my good friends, I woke up to the sad news Steve Jobs died yesterday.
So today's Thankful Thursday--written on my Mac--is dedicated to Mr. Steve Jobs.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from Steve Jobs.
What I love about them is that they aren't just for tech-people, but all people, and specifically *creative* people. I chose my favorites from the list, but you can read all 60 of Steve Jobs quotes here.
“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”
“Why join the navy if you can be a pirate?”
“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”
“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully.”
