"Steve Jobs", A legend, Optimistic and the source of my inspiration. He was the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer (CEO) of APPLE.
   People and I love him cause he shows us to see the computers in different and beautiful way. He gave us opportunity to do something special with computer and he change the views of computers for the whole world.

When iPod came in October 2001, it revolutionized the way people listen to music. When Microsoft released released Zune portable media player in November 2006, it was just another chunky mp3 player that achieved a market share of less than 5% two years later.

    Microsoft Zune was designed with profit in mind. Apple's iPod was designed with usability and joy in mind. "The older I get, the more I see how much motivation matters. 

Another factor that drove Steve Jobs was his awareness of how little time he had left in this life. In his own words:

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything, all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure, these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” - Steve Jobs

    

What motivated Steve Jobs to keep moving forward:

  • Autonomy - the desire to direct our own lives;
  • Mastery - the urge to get better and better at something that matters;
  • Purpose - the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves;
  • Awareness of death — a true understanding that your time is limited.

  Steve Jobs was driven by his desire to create great products that he would enjoy using himself rather than products that would just bring profit to Apple. Every time a new product or software was released by Apple, it became better and better at helping people enjoy using digital technology. Jobs always Knew that there is a big difference between using a product and enjoying a product.

Thank You.
