Blast from the Past:
Words of Wisdom From Steve Jobs
These are just some of the words used to describe Apple’s Steve Jobs. From launching Apple in his parents’ garage to his forced exile by John Sculley to his triumphant return that yielded iPhones and iPodes, Jobs’ story of ambition, loss, and redemption is truly an American legend.
Known for his uncompromising adherence to streamlining and simplifying design, Jobs revolutionized the music, telecommunications, computer, and internet industries. Along the way, he picked up a long list of business and life lessons. After his passing in 2011, Poets&Quants Editor-in-Chief John Byrne offered his own tribute to Jobs…in Jobs’ own words. Whether you’re seeking guidance or motivation, you won’t find a better teacher than Steve Jobs…who passed away this week three years ago.

A sales rep, an administration clerk and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out in a puff of smoke. The Genie says, “I usually only grant three wishes,so I’ll give each of you one wish each.”
“Me first! Me first!” says the admin clerk. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.”
Poof! She’s gone.
In astonishment, “Me next! Me next!” says the sales rep. “I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.”
Poof! He’s gone. “OK, you’re up,” the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”
