Get Inspired: Steve Jobs (Book)

If you are looking to read a story that is both incredible and inspiring, then I’d highly recommend picking up a copy of Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography.

The co-founder of Apple led a colourful and amazing life, and this wonderful biography written by Walter Isaacson is like a window into Steve Jobs’ soul.

It also reveals so much about his business success as CEO of Apple, as well as his involvement with Pixar. It’s amazing to hear how his passion for good products revolutionised the technology industry – and it will definitely make you look differently at your iPhone or iPod.

Be sure to add this book to your reading list! In the meantime, check out Steve Jobs’ inspirational speech below to Stanford University graduates from 2005. In this clip, he urges students to follow their hearts and find what they love to do.

Here’s a short excerpt from his speech:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
