  • Managers are transactional; Leaders are transformational

SELF ASSESSMENT

Ask yourself:
If my position, title, role or formal authority, were removed; would the people that i’m leading, still gladly follow me?

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.”

Steve Spoke Some Sense

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” — Steve Jobs

That life your living is for someone else. Not you.

“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary” — Steve Jobs

This takes courage.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.”  — Steve Jobs

We are products of our past.

“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… Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.” — Steve Jobs

Only if we did think like this, we would achieve things in life we don’t even dream of.

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs int eh square holes.” — Steve Jobs

There’s value in being different. They achieve non-conventional things – things that make the world go, wow.

Having children really changes your view on these things. We’re born, we life for a brief instant, and we die. It’s happening for a long time. — Steve Jobs

Time is short.

“I want to believe in an afterlife, that when you die, it doesn’t just all disappear. The wisdom you’ve accumulated somehow it lives on.” — Steve Jobs

Otherwise what’s the point?

“I want to put a ding in the universe.” — Steve Jobs

Let’s do it. From today.
