Little Steps, There

“What we find is that if you have a goal that is very, very far out,
and you approach it in little steps, you start to get there faster.
Your mind opens up to the possibilities.”
~ Carol Mae Jemison,
Physician, Dancer, Professor & NASA Astronaut

Keep Looking. Don’t Settle

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life,
and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.
And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.
As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

Entrepreneur, Marketer, Inventor, &
Co-Founder, Chairman & CEO of Apple, Inc.

On the Rotisserie

“The first time I was cooking for my wife, Stephanie, way before she was my wife, I actually put three chickens on the rotisserie and I closed the grill, which is really a bad idea. But I just wasn’t thinking very straight that day. And I looked outside and I saw, like, smoke and flames.”

No Drama Queens

“I have my team.
Like if you see everyone around me –
I have my hair and makeup girl, my assistant.
They’re very calm, they’re all about positive energy.
There are no drama queens.
Everyone wants everyone else to have a positive experience.
There are no agendas.
I think it creates a healthy environment
and there are no boundaries to cross.”

Bam Bam vs. Elroy

“Kids today aren’t listening to music audio-only.
They’re picking up a CD and looking at the lyric sheet
and wondering why the pictures aren’t moving around.
Who wants to do that?
It’s like Bam Bam Flintstone hanging with the dinosaurs
vs. Elroy Jetson who’s flying around space.
If I’m a kid, I wanna be kicking it with Elroy.”
