Steve Jobs was a truly inspiring man whose beliefs and practices have inspired a lot of people.

Following are the top nine most inspiring lessons I have learned from Medical:

october 9
#1 Do things right

With a young age, Steve Jobs learned a valuable lesson from his father: to craft the rear of cabinets and fences properly, but they were hidden.

Jobs learned while very young that it was important to do things the right way. From the inside out, Steve Jobs supported simple, beautiful design even for the parts of the product you don't see.

#2 Use simplicity in design

People like easy solutions to problems, and Jobs understood that. Apple devices integrate software and hardware flawlessly through simple design. Apple strips any unnecessary features using their products. Steve Jobs prided himself on his design philosophy he carried with him throughout his time at Apple:

 "Simplicity could be the ultimate sophistication." - Jobs

Jobs felt that design simplicity should be linked by making products simple to use.

#3 Focus is important

Medical had the ability to focus intensely on just a handful of core objectives. It was essential to him to pay attention to developing 1 amazing product during a period, instead of 1000 mediocre ones.

 "People think focus means agreeing to the thing you should focus on. But that's not exactly what it means at all. It implies saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully." - Steve Jobs

#4 Don't let others say you cannot do something

Jobs was noted for his futuristic imagination when developing products. Often, the Apple engineers would tell him that his ideas are not possible and could not take place. Jobs would say to them to find a way to do it.

 "What happened was, the designers came up with this great idea... and the engineers go, "Nah, we're not able to do that, That's impossible."... the manufacturing people... go "We can't build that!" And it gets a lot worse... And i also said "No, no, we're achieving this." And they said, "Well, why?" I said, "Because I'm the CEO and it can be done." Plus they kind of begrudgingly did it. But it was a big hit."

Medical adopted the mindest if he decided that something happen, then he was just making it happen.

#5 Understand customer needs and wants

Jobs had a unique ability to anticipate future technology that people don't even know they needed. Jobs completely revolutionized the pc, music, phone, and tablet industry. Jobs philosophy is summed up in this quote:

 "If we are able to rap about their needs, feelings, and motivations, we could respond appropriately by offering them what they want" - Jobs

Jobs ability to understand human desire and what the next breakthrough technology would be, allowed him to produce great companies founded on well designed products.

#6 It's not concerning the money

Steve Jobs didn't care about money whilst built companies. He belief that you should never start a company with the goal of getting rich. Your main goal should be making something believe in and building a company that will last.

#7 Recuit 'A' players in your team

Recruiting A players for your team is crucial! A players would be the brains behind great ideas and great products. Surrounding yourself with smart, innovative people is the best way to jumpstart an enterprise.

 "Great things in business aren't done by one person, they're created by a team of people." - Steve Jobs

But, A players typically like to work with other A players, says Jobs. So, escape both time and money by emphasizing only hiring A players to your organization.

#8 'Talk the talk' one which just 'walk the walk'

Jobs was very positive his abilities, yet extremely persistent together with his beliefs. He didn't always have the power, or seniority to voice his opinion so strongly, but Jobs taught me to pretend to be completely in charge and people will think that you are. People naturally want to follow others who exude confidence (never to be confused with cockiness). Jony Ive covers Job's persuasive abilities:

 "There is an activity he knows absolutely nothing about, and because of his crazy style and utter conviction, they can convince people that they know what he's referring to." - Jony Ive

#9 Only accept product perfection

Jobs was seen to either think something was the highest thing ever, or think it absolutely was awful. There was no in between. Steve Jobs was incredibly obsessed with his products, anf the husband showed it. Don't be satisfied with something just to meet a deadline, work with your product until it really is perfect and you are 100% proud of it.

Conclusion

These lessons from Jobs can be very beneficial to you and the business. Think about them and brainstorm tips on how to utilize them within your business.

For additional reading on Jobs, I highly recommend you pick up your own copy of Walter Isaacson's Biography on Health-related reasons. To this day, it is the most effective books I have read.
