Evan Charmichael has another interesting video compilation: Steve Jobs’s Top 10 Rules For Success. Here’s my summary:
1. Improve Your Life
Don’t accept life as it is. Everything around you was invented by people. Don’t live a limited life.
2. Do what you love
You need passion to persist.
3. Design for yourself
Start with what you like.
4. Focus on what you do best
Don’t sell crap.
5. Hire great people
Great people are self motivated. You just need to lead them with vision.
6. Company, People, and Products Are What’s Important
Don’t do it for the money. Money merely enables you to do things worth doing.
7. Make Products You’re Proud Of
Don’t sell stripped down products.
8. Start With The Customer
Don’t start from technology.
9. Market Your Values
E.g. Apple: “Think Different”
10. Keep Looking, Don’t Settle
Follow your curiosity and interest. Believe the dots will connect in the future. Is what I am going to do today what I want I’d want to do on my last day? Don’t waste your life. Follow your heart and intuition.
