Steve Jobs' talk

(n.) the art or work of preparing books, especially of designing how text will appear when it is printed
ex. Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legible, readable, and appealing when displayed.

(v.) to be so full that the contents go over the sides

(n.) a belief or set of beliefs held by a group or organization, which others are expected to accept without argument

1. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything.

2. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

3. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.


After reading Steve Job's stories, I think he is definitely the guy that we all should look up to. Although he had his ups and downs through out his life, he still became a very famous and successful man. The things I learned from him are that we should follow our hearts and never say never. He always did what he wanted to do and always lived every day as if it was his last day so he could cherish every moment and do something meaningful. Also, he was very diligent and never gave up even though he had encountered his hardest times which was getting fired from his own company. I really admire Steve Job, thinking of the obstacles that he had overcome really surprised me. He is absolutely our role model and his spirit will always be with us.
