Steve Jobs has some real memorable quotes. The latest, I discovered goes, “Real artists ship”. I’ve now added it to my list of Baller Quotes to Live By page.
The quote is all about execution – beauty means little if not shipped (created). Naturally, this applies for entrepreneurs. Artistry and entrepreneurship is not about creating perfect. It’s about creating.
Here are a few other quotes from the late Steve Jobs that I love and try to live by.
- “… you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.”
- “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 ever 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.”
- “Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
