A collection of the best quotes from a truly innovative man.

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”

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

“Bill Gates‘d be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger.”

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

“Recruiting is hard. It’s just finding the needles in the haystack. You can’t know enough in a one-hour interview. So, in the end, it’s ultimately based on your gut. How do I feel about this person? What are they like when they’re challenged? I ask everybody that: ‘Why are you here?’ The answers themselves are not what you’re looking for. It’s the meta-data.”

“Click. Boom. Amazing!”

“I mean, some people say, ‘Oh, God, if [Jobs] got run over by a bus, Apple would be in trouble.’ And, you know, I think it wouldn’t be a party, but there are really capable people at Apple. My job is to make the whole executive team good enough to be successors, so that’s what I try to do.”

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully.”

“I think the key thing is that we’re not all terrified at the same time. I mean, we do put our heart and soul into these things.”

“We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life.

“Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

“Life is brief, and then you die, you know?”

A truly inspirational man has passed.  Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, helped change the face of the world. He will truly be missed.

Listen to some inspirational words that he left us with.

Steve Jobs dead at 56.

A glass of Orange juice.

Approximately 80 percent of America‘s orange juice is made from Florida-grown oranges.  And now that I live in Florida and have access to fresh o.j. just about everywhere at anytime of day, (I guess most of America has this too, lol) I thought I’d look into the benefits of drinking the sweet orange nectar.

Vitamin C is one of the most important antioxidants and it helps support a healthy immune system. Vitamin C may help neutralize free radicals that can damage cells and tissues and lead to disease. One 8-ounce glass of 100% Florida orange juice provides at least 100 percent of the Daily Value.

Potassium plays an important role in muscle function and may help reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.  One 8-ounce glass of 100 % orange juice provides 14 percent of the Daily Value for potassium.

Folate (Folic Acid) is essential for cell division and healthy red blood cells.  Adequate folic acid consumption during a woman’s childbearing years is strongly associated with reducing the risk of having a baby with birth defects of the brain and spinal cord, known as “neural tube defects.” Folate may help lower homocysteine levels in the blood that may contribute to inflammation that has been associated with cognitive impairment.  An 8-ounce glass of 100% Florida orange juice provides about 11 percent of the Daily Value for folate.

Calcium (in fortified orange juice) is a key building block for strong, healthy bones and diets rich in calcium may also help support healthy blood pressure and promote cardio-vascular health. Eight ounces of calcium-fortified orange juice is an excellent non-dairy source of calcium, providing at least 35 percent of the Daily Value.

Vitamin B6 helps the body process energy from the food we eat and is needed for the production of new cells, including healthy red blood cells. An 8-ounce glass of 100% Florida orange juice provides 7 percent of the Daily Value for vitamin B6.

Thiamin is associated with the action of many enzyme systems, the conversion of food into energy and the production/repair of DNA. An 8-ounce glass of orange juice provides 18 percent of the Daily Value for thiamin.

Well it still remains true. I’ve never met a job I liked. I’ve liked some of the things I’ve done, but just can’t think of one place I’ve worked where I’ve really enjoyed my time there.  That’s why I’m trying to create my own job.  Whatever that may be.

Also thinking about going back to school.  Finally finishing my degree.  Or possibly changing it up to something new.  Maybe Radiology.  Make some money and helping people in the process… sounds decent. I’ll keep you updated 🙂
