Steve Jobs, the Late Apple Founder and the Lessons He Left Behind

What you would see here are quotations from the late Apple founder which we thought people in any field, in any circumstances should digest. Steve Jobs just passed away. He was 56.

He was considered one of the world’s most brilliant CEOs. In world of technology, he was god. Steve Jobs left us with the technological innovations which are fruits of his ingenious mind. But apart from those tangible devices, he also shared lessons through his words. Lessons about technology, business, and life as a whole.

Steve Jobs memorable quotations

“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.”

“You know, we don’t grow most of the food we eat. We wear clothes other people make. We speak a language that other people developed. We use a mathematics that other people evolved… I mean, we’re constantly taking things. It’s a wonderful, ecstatic feeling to create something that puts it back in the pool of human experience and knowledge.”

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying w e’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.”

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”

“.. almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

Home Remedies for Sunburn

A sunburn is a burn to living tissue, such as skin, which is produced by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, commonly from the sun’s rays. Usual mild symptoms in humans and animals include red or reddish skin that is hot to the touch, general fatigue, and mild dizziness. An excess of UV radiation can be life-threatening in extreme cases. Exposure of the skin to lesser amounts of UV radiation will often produce a suntan. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunburn)

remedy and treatment for sunburn Staying for long hours under the sun can cause sunburn, a usual problem of most people during summer. If we can’t afford to see a doctor or a dermatologist, here are some of the effective home treatment measures that could provide some relief from a mild sunburn:

  • Use cool cloths and damp on sunburned areas.
  • Take frequent cool showers or baths.
  • Apply soothing lotions that contain aloe vera to sunburned areas.
  • If you have aloe vera on your gardens, you may also take out it’s gel and apply it directly to the affected area.

Sometimes, a sunburn can cause a mild fever and a headache. Try to relax. Lie down in a cool, quiet room to relieve the headache. A headache may also be caused by dehydration, so drinking ample fluids may help.

At any rate, we can avoid or prevent sunburn by using high in SPF lotion or sunblocks. We could also opt to have swimming at night instead.

Jennifer Aniston sports her new angular bob haircut

Have you ever wondered why Jennifer Aniston always, always makes it to the headlines under fashion and style categories everytime she gets a new hairstyle? I do.

Brad Pitt’s ex-wife just had her hair cut and then suddenly, women all over the world tried searching for a photo of Jen and her new hairstyle. She had quite a major haircut when she decided to chop off more than half the length of her previous beachy layered locks and got herself an angular bob.

I know I promised to had my hair trimmed every month but due to my busy schedule and the agony of waiting for my hair to grow longer as fast as it can, the monthly trimming got a cross mark from my monthly calendar.

Back to Jen and her angular bob. I’m a fan of long beach waves and whenever Jen sports that ‘do, she’s just so effortlessly gorgeous. The angular bob makes her look a bit ‘guarded’, at least for me.
