by AJ Smith44 39 replies
Hello Warrior's,

How can we learn from this great individual?

I watched a powerful youtube video by Forbes contributor Carmine Gallo;
He describes the 7 Principles that drove Steve Jobs' Success. You can watch the video on youtube. Search for it on youtube by typing:
"seven principles that drove Steve Jobs success" in the search bar.
I appears I need more post before I can include the link. However, here are the 7 Principles mentioned in the video:

1. Do what you love.

"People with passion can change the world for the better." -Steve Jobs

2. Put a dent in the universe.

"Life is too short to live someone elses dream"-Steve Jobs

3. Connect things to spark your creativity.

"Creativity is just connecting things"- Steve Jobs

4. Say no to 1,000 things.

"Innovation comes from saying no to 1,000 things"-Steve Jobs

5. Create Insanely different experiences.

"The apple store is met to enrich lives not move boxes"-Steve Jobs

6. Master the Message.

"Dream Bigger" Steve Jobs

7. Sell Dreams, not products.

"If you help your customers reach their dreams, you will win them over"

Steve Jobs

I hope this inspires you as well....

    I finished reading his biography a week or two ago. He's an interesting fellow, very intense, deeply driven and also somewhat frail and broken (you can say we all are).

    He seemed to have a mix of strong/positive and terrible relationships in his personal life and was just outright cruel to people.

    Definitely a good read though. Here's his commencement speech at Harvard:

    My personal favorite quote though is what he said to convince the then CEO of Pepsi to join Apple:

    "Do you want to sell sugar water the rest of your life? Or do you want to change the world?".

    My friend used to work with Google and has all kinds of crazy stories about this guy. Definitely an interesting guy who obsessed about the littlest details. Good? Bad? Who's to say? But he definitely contributed more than his share to the world.

    One of the greatest thinkers of this time. Without him we would not have seen some of the fabulous products which have made our lives so easier.

    Tributes to Steve Jobs always. Reading his biography.

    Wow...isn't that great.

    Conservatively possibly less than 7000 people out of the 7 billion people on earth today live by these principles.

    This " Sell Dreams, not products." really inspires me.

    Steve Jobs - A great success coach.

    I also really love the "Sell dreams, not products" principle.
    How do you guys think we can achieve that behind internet marketers?

    I think we should stop focusing on the features of our products like "64 pages single spacing" and cover more about what are the benefits to the purchaser.

    I think it makes the difference between "Learn how to get to first spot of Google" and "Be on the top spot of Google".

    Just a tought,

    Jobs was a master of two things, 1. making things finger lickin good, 2. prelaunching them effectively
