"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."
~ Steve Jobs

Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful, that's what matters to me.
~Steve Jobs

Steve wisdom has given many life new inspiration, me too:-) I just wish to share that with you all. Hope some of you gain inspiration and courage from this quote.

...Come in and share what you've gained from Steve Jobs, your unique views and personal experiences would be a great add-on that could inspire more life.

    i am quite aware of my inner voice ..and listening to it i get a bit testy with the success model that gets sold ...a ton of money.. large houses and piles of stuff in storage units .. is not success ..if we are living lives so far off the lives we were meant to lead ..that we have a list of prescription drugs we take every day .. unhealthy bodies ..and we regularly have to drink ourselves to point stupid to do anything fun ..

    so many people where chasing the real estate success .. buying homes they could pay for ..and hoping to cash out by selling before they had to pay.. china kept it's economy steaming ahead by constructing cities for millions of people.. that remain empty ..

    are you trying to live a life being sold to you ..not because it is best for you but because it keeps the machine of perpetual disatifaction in control of your life ..

    Robert Kiyosaki once said: "Don't let other people apply their limitations to you."

    Don't let other people tell you that you can't do it. They can't do it, so they tell you that you can't do it also. Stop listening to these people and you will open the world with no limitations for yourself.

    Great post...and very true...Too often people do what is expected rather than what they want. I've come across a lot of people (NOT in IM) that don't even know what it is they really want, people that simply aren't driven by their wants. It always strikes me this is normality for so many.
    Even if you don't get what you want, it's so liberating to fight for it...and the funny thing is that if you fight hard enough, getting/doing what you want is not that difficult or scary...

    The trick of marketing is to know what to do, when to do it, where to do it, how to do it.
    The ART of marketing is not to give up...

    Steve Jobs quotes on things that RELATE to the Internet Marketing industry.

    “The problem with the Internet startup craze isn’t that too many people are starting companies; it’s that too many people aren’t sticking with it. That’s somewhat understandable, because there are many moments that are filled with despair and agony, when you have to fire people and cancel things and deal with very difficult situations. That’s when you find out who you are and what your values are.

    And some quotes relate to ANY businesses.

    “So when these people sell out, even though they get fabulously rich, they’re gypping themselves out of one of the potentially most rewarding experiences of their unfolding lives. Without it, they may never know their values or how to keep their newfound wealth in perspective.” [Fortune, Jan. 24, 2000]

    “You’re missing it. This is not a one-man show. What’s reinvigorating this company is two things: One, there’s a lot of really talented people in this company who listened to the world tell them they were losers for a couple of years, and some of them were on the verge of starting to believe it themselves. But they’re not losers. What they didn’t have was a good set of coaches, a good plan. A good senior management team. But they have that now.” [BusinessWeek, May 25, 1998]

    “Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.” [Fortune, Nov. 9, 1998]

    “We think the Mac will sell zillions, but we didn’t build the Mac for anybody else. We built it for ourselves. We were the group of people who were going to judge whether it was great or not. We weren’t going to go out and do market research. We just wanted to build the best thing we could build."

      He would be proud, the greatest leaders leave a legacy that outlives them. He ingrained his values in the DNA of Apple, I doubt they will fall off any time soon.

    Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked.

    ...Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. ...

    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 others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
