As CEO of the best in the business, many lessons to be learned from history and the history of his life in founding Apple.
Here are some principles to live Steve Jobs, strategy and some excerpts of his speech is very important to serve as a lesson.
The most lasting innovation was combining art and science
Steve has always shown that large differences in the Apple and other computer products is that companies are always trying to combine art and science of designing and making each product. Tim maker Apple products not only from among those who have the background or computer technology but also has a background in anthropology, art, history and poetry. But it's something that is difficult for computer scientists or engineers to see the importance of the elements of art, so that every company must have a leader who realizes the importance of this.
To create the future, you can not do through a focus on a group / consumer
A management theory says that: if you create a consumer product in building products and services you need to listen to your customers.
Steve Jobs is one of the first entrepreneurs would only waste of waste of time, current customers do not always know what they want, especially if it is something they had never heard, seen, and touched on. When it became known that Apple will come out with a tablet (iPad) many are skeptical and say it was a joke, how can a computer only in the form of a tablet screen. But set iPad actually released, this product becomes Apple products are the fastest growing in history and become a trendsetter for others. Picasso and the great artists have done for centuries and Jobs is the first in the business.
Do not be afraid of failure
In a speech at Stanford in 2005, Jobs said: "No one wants to die. Even people who go to heaven do not want to die to get there. But death is the destination we all. No one has ever escaped. And it should be, because death is the single best invention of life. It is the agent of change in life. This clears the old and gives the opportunity for a new one. Now that the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and cleaned. Sorry to be so dramatic, but very true. Your time is limited, so do not waste other people's lives.
Do not be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Do not let the voices of other people's opinions drown out your own inner. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. As long as you already know what you really want to be. Something else is to become secondary. "
You can not connect the dots forward only backwards
One of the important quotes in a speech at Stanford in 2005 "Once again, you can not connect the dots for hope in the future, you can only connect them looking backwards. So, you have to trust that the dots will somehow strung you in the future. You must believe in your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. "The purpose of this speech excerpt is that, no matter how much we plan our lives ahead, there's always something totally unexpected about life that makes yourplan does not go well as you want. You must believe that what you are doing now will become a connected dots in the future, what you did in the past will now also become part of the plan.
Listen to the voice in the back of your head that tell you if you're on the right track or not
Most of us do not hear the voice inside our heads. We just decided in an instant to become a doctor or work in finance because of the encouragement of parents, or because we want to make lots of money. Jobs is the man who had big plans when he wanted to build a computer a lot of encouragement and choices from outside or from inside his own head which indicates how it should be.
But when Jobs first saw the GUI (Graphical User Interface), he knows this is the future of computing and that he must create it. This is where you should be smart to listen to and choose the option that you, directs you where to be.
Expect much from yourself and others
We've heard the story of Steve Jobs that he is a perfectionist. He wants the best from himself and the people who work for him, and continues to attract someone with amazing talent around him, Why?as a proverb says: If you are a player "B" and you rent a player "C" is because you do not want players subordinates you look smarter, but if you're a player "A" and you rent a player"A +" it is because you want the best results.
Do not care about being right or wrong, cares for the success and the success - He became the CEO of Apple Inc..
When he was 30 years old, one year after Apple released the Macintosh, he was fired. Yes, fired. Jobs, CEO of Apple Inc.. It's not resigning, but was fired. Initially they-Jobs and Apple-hire someone they think is competent to participate with them running the company. But in the middle of the road he and Jobs distinct vision and can no longer aligned. Commissariat company agrees to remove them. Be Jobs fired from Apple. All goals and expectations and necessarily fall apart. He did not know what he should do. He felt he had disappointed many people and almost he thought of leaving his home in Silicon Valley. But his spirit slowly return.
Little by little "What happened at Apple is not the slightest change me." Jobs still loves his job. "I rejected but I am still in love. So I decided to start again from scratch. "
It was delivered at a time. Most creative period in his life.Five years later he rose, he began mendirinkan company named NeXT, Pixar, and at the same time he fell in love with a woman who has become his wife.

Soon after Apple bought NeXT and Jobs returned to Apple.
Later, NeXT became instrumental in the rise of technology at Apple. He believes that the events he experienced is wonder would not have happened if he had not been fired from Apple and stopped in the middle of the road.

Stay hungry, Stay Foolish
Once again the end of the impressive Steve Jobs speech at Stanford in 2005: "When I was young, there is an outstanding publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which is one of my generation the Bible. 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 is the late 1960's, before personal computers and destkop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors,and polaroid cameras. It is like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and full of neat tools and great expressions. Steward and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and when mencapa run its course,they make a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I wasyour age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road.
Underneath were the words "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish 'it was their farewell message. And I'm always expecting that for myself. And now, as you graduate to perform a new life I hope you "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish'do not easily satisfied. "
Anything is possible with hard work, determination, and vision

He is a husband, father, friend like you and me. We can be like him if we learn from him and apply it from now on in our lives.
