I can’t really say that there is one quote that is my favourite. There are a few some more personal than others, and somewhere this isn’t the right forum to air them, those are my mental quotes, that are stored in my head, for me to follow.
There is one quote, in particular, that is written on the wall in the living room, it’s by the late, great Steve Jobs, Apple and Pixar Cofounder, I admired Steve’s lifestyle and his attitude to the way he got things done.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do”. Steve then went on to say “If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it”. This quote is from Steve’s Commencement Address that he gave at Stanford University in 2005. You can watch Steve’s whole address in the embed video from Stanford University below.
I have now come to live by this motto if I am doing something that I dislike doing I know, as I guess most people do that you won’t put 100% of your effort into it, even if you really try. But if you are doing something you love, something you really have a passion for then that is where you will give it 110% of your effort, and won’t be happy until your attempt is the best that it can be.
