Don’t Quote Steve Jobs. Listen to Steve Jobs

by | Sep 8, 2022

Here is a thought: Stop quoting Steve Jobs.
Instead? Start listening to Steve Jobs. 👇🏽

Too often, I see presentations, tweets, videos, TikToks, blogs, or IG posts that quote Steve Jobs and what he had done, or suggest doing.

But here is the issue. So many of these quotes and examples forget one thing – to focus on the mindset Steve Jobs brought to Apple.

That’s why we need to listen to one of his most overlooked advice: “Technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with the liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields the results that make our hearts sing,” he said on the launch of the iPad 2 on March 2, 2011.

Even though he shared what drives Apple, many business leaders still ignore his profound advice. Here is an exercise, would Job’s approach have been different if Apple was an agriculture, real estate, or even a bank and not a technology company? I highly doubt it.

Steve Jobs saw, understood, and implemented art as an integral part of their work.

So next time you read his quote about marketing, customers, products, or technology, ask yourself one simple question: how do the arts integrate into it?
