Few people have had the kind of impact on the world as Steve Jobs. The former co-founder and CEO of Apple passed away ten years ago today, yet his presence and influence are as strong as ever.
Students of industry study him. Entrepreneurs and artists were inspired by him. He was a complicated man. A complex leader. And an undisputed visionary whose influence helped bring about and evolve two of the most iconic companies of their kind: Apple and Pixar.
On this day we remember his legacy.
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. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.Steve Jobs
