Steve Jobs advice to Mark Zuckerberg

Mark travelled to Kainchi Dham Ashram, in Nanital, Uttarakhand. The same place Steve had visited, and where he got clarity on his life purpose. For a month, Mark meditated in the temple and travelled through India.

That one piece of advice from Steve Jobs, that one decision to take action on it by Mark Zuckerberg – and leave his company and country for a month to follow it – has proven to be worth over $35 Billion as Facebook has grown to connect over one billion people today.

Today, who can you learn from?

Today, what action are you willing to take?

Earning always follows learning.

“I realized my mission in life was to learn more, not earn more.” ~ Surya Da

Steve Jobs Rules of Thumb

Jobs ThumbsGreat entrepreneurs don’t use rule books, but they do use rules of thumb:

Rule books are fixed. Rules of thumb are flexible.
Rule books put you in a box. Rules of thumb point you on a path.
Rule books instruct you. Rules of thumb inspire you.

All the ingredients of fast-growing companies – Creativity, culture, talent, team and trust – grow with the guidance of the right rules of thumb.

Here’s Steve Jobs’ Top 10:

Rule 1 – “Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”

Rule 2 – “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”

Rule 3 – “One of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex.”

Rule 4 – “My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.”

Rule 5 – “Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”

Rule 6 – “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.”

Rule 7 – “For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

Rule 8 – “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”

Rule 9 – “Overthinking leads to negative thoughts”

Rule 10 – “Stay hungry, stay foolish.”

When you throw away the rule book, and write down your rules of thumb, you’re writing down your guiding principles. They give you a simple compass to follow instead of a complex map to remember. What are yours?

In less than five years time we will go shopping online in VR enviroments and there will also be an option to ”meet” and chat with our Facebook friends in VR.
