Lessons from Steve Jobs
P K Routray
Connecting dots of Steve Jobs signifies that
Future has a connection with past,
“With one’s past investments he gets future dividends’ is an established fact.
Experts in all fields use tools of statistics to forecast future with past data as per established theory,
Naturally and also as per spiritual scriptures one’s good deeds of past reap his future bliss and glory.
Principles of love and loss as practiced and preached by Steve Jobs,
With brickbats of impediments and adversities one’s true love glitters and yields positive results.
Animate or inanimate love begets love,
Hence our love for our ambition should remain true and should never dissolve.
When one knows one’s death is sure and imminent,
His lust, greed,, anger and jealousy vanish along with attachment.
This makes man a superman and the result is obvious,
A man has to die at any moment hence has to search and act shunning the distractions with his single purpose.
Steve did not visit requisite class rooms and coaching centre
Hence he had no idea on any theory whatsoever.
As he felt himself foolish, his hunger for knowledge was intense,
His zeal and power of assimilation grew and his wisdom was immense.
From Steve’s life story it is clear,
The university should give priority so that a student feels he is foolish and for knowledge this increases his hunger.
