Steve Jobs was one of the most inspiring yet toughest boss ever — but who else could have built Apple? Steve Jobs didn't just leave a legacy of great products. He also shared ideas that continue to inspire and motivate. While it’s often said that Jobs wasn’t the nicest of guys, he played a significant role in some giant steps for technology, and also said some pretty wise words from time to time. Here are 25 amazing Steve Jobs quotes that can easily change the way you work in the best way possible:
1. "Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations."
2. "When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through."
3. "That’s been one of my mantras—focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple."
4. "Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles."
5. "Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful...that’s what matters to me."
