Stay hungry. Stay foolish

I just finished reading Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. Whether you are an Apple fanatic or not, I highly recommend the book to anyone wanting to understand the digital ear in which we live!

I think everyone would agree that he was a one of a kind perfectionist and visionary. I am totally appreciative of the man, his business achievements and his impact on consumer technology. However lunatic or hero? I can’t quite decide. Please help me form an opinion…

For those who haven’t read the book, this speech (Stanford commencement speech 2005) is a good summary of his life & business philosophy… highly inspiring

Stay Hungry, stay foolish

  1. I finished the book about 2 weeks ago and I am still in shock by Steve Jobs’ achievements (both success & failures) Amongst the things that I am still turning and twisting in my head is his ability to marry art & technology to create great products & experiences. We very often forget the "art" bit and it’s magic in business…@ pixolut, you clarified a great point: Steve’s reality distortion filed. It s described in the book almost as a flaw, a strong way to impose his view on everyone… but as you said, it must actually have come from his connection to spirituality and meditation.I am sold on Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda & insanely great. The only question is paperback or ebook? Thanks for your comment!
