7 Rules of Success
  • Do what you love. Passion is everything.
  • Put a dent in the universe. Jobs believed in the power of vision. Don't lose sight of the big vision.
  • Make connections.  People with a broad set of life experiences can often see things that others miss. Connect ideas from different fields.
  • Say no to 1,000 things. Say no to quantity, and focus on the quality of your best products.
  • Create insanely different experiences. The motive is to enrich lives, not just to move products.
  • Master the message.  Instead of simply delivering a presentation, inform, educate, inspire and entertain.
  • Sell dreams, not products.  Customers don't care about your product. They care about themselves. If you help your customers reach their dreams, you'll win them over.
