“You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.”
― Steve Jobs
According to Steve Jobs speech: People say you have to have a lot of passion for what your doing and it’s totally true and the reason is ah is because its so hard, and if you don’t, any rational person would give up. It’s really hard, you have to do it over a sustained period of time.
People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you’re doing, it’s totally true and the reason is that it’s so hard any rational person would give up.
It’s really hard and you have to do it over a sustained period of time, so if you don’t love it, if you’re not having fun doing it and you don’t really love it, you’re going to give up.
That’s what happens to most people actually, if you really look at the ones who ended up being successful in the eyes of society and the ones who didn’t, often times the ones who are successful loved what they did so they could persevere when it got really tough and the ones who didn’t love it quit – because they’re sane!
Who would want to put up with this stuff if you didn’t love it? It’s a lot of hard work and a lot of worrying constantly and if you don’t love it you’re going to fail. You’ve got to love it, you’ve got to have passion. That’s the high order bit.
The second thing is you’ve got to be a really good talent scout. No matter how smart you are, you need a team of great people. You’ve got to figure out how to size people up fairly quickly and make decisions without knowing people too well and hire them, see how you do and refine your intuition. You’ve got to be able to build an organisation that can eventually build itself – because you need great people around you.
