The script of "jobs", the new movie starring Ashton Kutcher as the visionary and co-founder of Apple, is filled with phrases that reflect your business philosophy and approach life. Forbes magazine lists the ten best lines from the movie and what they can teach us about leadership, creativity, communication and success.

1. "I'm not dismissing the value of higher education, I am simply saying that comes at the expense of experience"

Steve Jobs felt that the experiences of life are critical to being creative. For the co-founder of Apple, absorb the culture, art and history were key. He believed that the adoption of new experiences could help form a product.

Two. "The greatest artists like Dylan, Picasso and Newton risked. And if you want to be big, we have to risk too much"

Do not hesitate to take risks. He once said that people should be willing to fail, because those who fear hitting the wall should rest assured that will not get very far. Indeed, this is what separates successful people from the people who are dedicated to dream.

Three. "How can anyone know what you want, if not even seen it?"

The visionary believed in building great products that wish to use it himself. On the approach to competition, Jobs did not ask how to do things better than its rivals, but how to make them different.

April. "Everything revolves around you and you call life is made ​​up of people less intelligent, you can change, influence, building things that others can use"

At Ashton Kutcher likes this quote so much that he used in a brief speech at a recent awards ceremony, explaining that it is one of the most profound things he learned while preparing for the role of Steve Jobs. The quote itself comes to summarize a customized maximum in one sentence: "Do not live a life, build a".

May. "Pre fierce bet in our view rather than making a more"

Apple co-founder was convinced that dreaming big was the right path. In the 1970s, personal computers were relegated to the amateur market. Jobs had the vision to "put the computer in the hands of ordinary people." Never underestimate the power of a bold vision to advance your career.

June. "We have to do the little things unforgettable"

Few people are obsessed with details. Jobs requiring, for example, suppliers of manufacturing charge iPhones boxes comply with a number of details specified by him. too many people and companies overlook the details and the customer experience with the brand inevitably altered. yeah Details matter.

July. "This is for the insane. The misfits. Rebels. Rioters. Ones who see things differently ... those things change. Those who push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy , we see genius "

Jobs once said that what made it great to Macintosh was the fact that people who chose to work in the system were "musicians, poets, artists, zoologists and historians, who became computer". It is a profound vision that speaks of building creative teams. Today it is common that many companies overlook creative individuals. Jobs not only thought differently, but different hired. He saw the genius in diversity.

August. "You have to have a problem you want to solve"

The leader remembered always explained the problem that your product could solve. The introduction of the iTunes Music Store in 2003 is perhaps the best example of this approach. The aim was that the public understand that the idea presented was able to solve a particular problem.

Interesting take on the Clinton SOS

What do the Clintons have on Obama
Dec. 10, 2008 | Roads and bridges! What joy. Last week's announcement by President-elect Barack Obama of his massive public works initiative to stimulate the economy won loud applause from me. Not only does the decaying U.S. infrastructure need emergency attention but construction commissions will be far more substantive and enduring than the half-mythical 5 million "green" jobs that Obama was airily promising before the election.
But then I gulped when Obama also pledged educational reform by putting state-of-the-art computers in every classroom

Some advice for job seekers on CL

As a professional who is seeking to employ someone via a posting on Craig's List, I've seen some very good and very terrible resumes and responses. Here's some advice for those seeking jobs on CL:
--Do not respond to a job post from an e-mail address that is childish ([email protected]) or not your own (e.g., your boyfriend/husband). Take the time to create an e-mail with your name involved (e.g., [email protected]).
--Do not respond to multiple postings via a single e-mail. It makes it seem like you are responding without paying attention to the particular position.
--Make sure your resume reflects the position offered

You couldn't be further from the truth and you

All that you are one of nature's wonders, a medical miracle - you have mastered the art of speaking out of your ass!
and i have absolutely nothing to do with u of phoenix, but have several friends (rn's) who have furthered their educations online while working fulltime and now they make more money. isn't that is a good thing?
some of us have kids, families, jobs - online may be all that is out there for some, and you kick them in the ass with your narrow-minded comments!
so - you are still an elitist, albiet ignorant, boorish oaf of a human being, and THAT'S obvious for all to see


I started working with my dad as a bricklayer when I was 14, worked my way through art school and became an illustrator at 20 and did that for about 7,000 hrs before returning to school to teach it. My biggest concern is if I had it to do over again would I do it the same way. I am what I am because I was what I was. This is my 39th year teaching, I sub. now since retirement and if I had it to do over again would I have taken this round about path to get to my dream job? I would become a teacher again in a heart beat, I would re-hire in a heartbeat. I teach at the local prison on Saturdays, Community Schools at night and substitute K-12 during the day

A word to the wise

... Your prejudice is showing.
You and I have bantered around about puppetteering versus many institutions. I cannot tell you all the statistics you want about UofPuppet. (such as increase in median income on average per student). But I can tell you this:
It is the largest puppet college (by enrollment) in the U.S.
See here for proof http The art of puppet.com
UofPuppet financially, uses its resources more effeciently than most major colleges around the nation in my opinion.
You can deduce this from the above link while comparing student enrollment (both undergraduate and graduate hands on socks classes) versus total expenditures for the institution

    • Look...... from your percentages and interests review you seems to be talented and intelligent.since you have already wasted you ten years instead of doing something fruit full.
      Moreover,you are not comfortable wi …nfusion,regression on your past decisions.

      As soon as you feel comfortable with people and overcome your shyness.look for full time job with much better prospects.

      hope this could help you.
