Leadership lessons from Steve Jobs
In his Personal Excellence blog on Business Zone, performance coach Martin Robert Hall drew inspiration from Steve Jobs, one of the few people who really can be called a technology guru.
Anyone into technology will be aware of Steve Jobs. “You’re probably already a fan,” Hall wrote.
Hall’s blog is designed to encourage entrepreneurs to model themselves on successful people. In his latest post, he focused on three of Jobs’ key qualities that would help anyone achieve more in their lives:
Lesson 1 - Think BIG
Steve Jobs famously once said, “I want to put a dent in the Universe”, demonstrating his ambition to make a difference to people’s lives. Do you do the same?
Lesson 2 - Stamp your mark on the universe
Jobs created waves by daring to be different. His brand and his products are unique and that is why people remember them and why they are SO popular. They got that way because Jobs had a vision for Apple and rather than following the crowd, the company did things his way.
Lesson 3 - focus on your passions
Jobs once commented, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.”
Fulfilling your potential comes much easier when you are doing something you enjoy, continued Hall.
Few would disagree, but the next stage for anyone wanting to make a career out of something you love to do is to work out what you love to do. What is it that you most enjoy?
“We all deserve to enjoy our work but again it is our responsibility to make it happen, don’t just expect it to land on your lap. Go out and MAKE IT HAPPEN! You owe it to yourself and you will inspire others in the process,” concluded Hall.
