When talking about our purpose in life and establishing goals for ourselves, it’s easy for us to feel lost or overwhelmed, but another equally important phrase is – don’t settle. We all want success and fulfillment – things that will leave us feeling proud and content with the lives we’ve achieved – but often, this can be challenging without some inspiring advice from figures such as Steve Jobs.
One common piece of wisdom provided by the tech innovator was that — “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.” (Standford News) This statement implies that our working life can either become an endless cycle of misery or a rewarding wave of passion, depending on what kinds of projects we involve ourselves in. But more crucially – if we don’t have something we love doing, then “keep looking” until you find it. Don’t settle for anything less than greatness.
In these moments, you must be honest with yourself – always listen closely to your heart and never settle for anything less than greatness when making decisions concerning your career path. Think long-term – not short-term – when mapping out your plan so that you don’t end up unhappy in later years due to discontentment now caused by settling too early.
Beyond finding something we love doing, it’s also essential to remember that great work comes hand-in-hand with determination, resilience, hard work, adaptability, and innovation. All these items are like building blocks that help construct strong foundations allowing you greater opportunity while pushing towards excellence at whatever task or project you are pursuing. Achieving success doesn’t happen overnight; it takes time, hard effort, and sweat before seeing results, but if you persevere through those difficulties, there will come moments of realization within which absolute joy can be felt due to achieving a personal goal or milestone along your journey towards validation; proving yourself worthy amongst those who doubt or challenge you on matters related to their own lack of self-worth.
The message is clear; settling equals unhappiness; thus, it is essential for individuals seeking success within their professional careers to explore different paths within their industry until they find something they are adaptable at & passionate about doing simultaneously – being open-minded yet remaining focused on what you know they are capable achieve—striving towards magnificence at all costs regardless of outside spectacle or opinion which may and likely will accompany such endeavors along away.
At its core, Steve Jobs’ famous quote provides guidance and direction for prospective candidates seeking fulfillment in their careers. It suggests finding unity and identity to feel attached to one’s achievements, unlocking potential opportunities, and pursuing goals set in the beginning stages of dreams and aspirations. It takes courage to embark on the journey, but perseverance and resolve will ultimately lead to rewards after overcoming challenges.
