This marked him, as it was months without knowing what to do, but after a long time, he decided to create Pixar, and fell in love with his wife. Time passed by and Apple took him again, and Steve returned to the company, with new ideas and new technologies driving the company to success. In this story, Steve Jobs sends emotional messages to us to have faith, not to lose, and never stop looking for what we really like because things get better as the years pass, and we can find what we really like, and what we are really satisfied working. It appeals to pathos; anyone can notice Steve Jobs transferring optimism, and strength to go ahead. Personally, Steve Jobs here has given me the desire to undertake, move on, and never give up.
Without an innate ability to help you get an advantage, the chances of getting successful is very slim. In the article “Your Genes Don’t Fit. W Why 10,000 Hours of Practice Won’t Make You An Expert” the author gives an example of the innate ability of Warren Buffett’s brain. In the article the author writes, “But he was born with a brain for business- a brain that would lend itself to number-crunching and risk-taking and opportunity identifying and all other skills that go into becoming the leading investor of his generation.”(Pg.1) The example correlates with my claim because it shows that because Warren Buffett had the instinctive capability of doing business. Having the mind for business, Warren Buffett was able to become of the successful investors of his
Over the course of his administration he raised the GDP thirty-four percent which is an incredible growth when compared to that of other presidents. The Obama has only seen a growth of about thirteen percent, which is still impressive but nothing compared to that of Reagan. Furthermore, Reagan had a goal to reduce unemployment over the course of his administration. Over his eight years in office he cut the rate of unemployment in this country in half (Reagan Economy and Society Slide 9). Reagan was very successful in fulfilling his economic goals and that is why I think he was one of our best presidents.
In the year of 2011, the world lost one of the most successful figures in the high-tech business — Steve Jobs. He was the creator of Apple, Pixar Animation and NeXT. On the day of Stanford University 114th Commencement in 2005, he shared his personal anecdotes and urged the graduates to seek their dreams and discover the window of opportunities in life's hindrances, as well as death itself. They very first line of his speech, Steve Jobs compliments the Stanford graduates as he instantly appealed their emotions. “I’m honored to be with you today for your commencement for one of the finest universities in the world” (Jobs).
Goodman, like many “bad” doctors was excellent, he used to be passionate about his work “He used to enjoy being in the operating room, fixing people” (92). However, Goodman changed his approach to a more mechanical one “it seemed that the only thing he thought about was getting through all his patients as quickly as possible” (93). Goodman has in fact become fascinated with his status as the number one booker, rather than the well-being of his patients” he had become
Book Review on Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different A Biography by Karen Blumenthal In the book by Karen Blumenthal “Steve Jobs, The Man Who Thought Different” she tells the story of an extremely smart man who became a very successful entrepreneur and business man. The author sets up the book with Mr. Job’s giving a commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005 and then starts telling the story of his life starting from the beginning. She does a very good job covering all events of Mr. Jobs life in three parts with good detail but not so much as to lose the readers interest. The book helps you better understand the type of person he was, what made him tick, and how he could accomplish so much. After opening with Steve Jobs at the commencement speech, Blumenthal starts part one of her book at the very beginning of his life, his birth.
It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes. Jobs repeats “it means” three times to tell the audience how cruel the death means for him. The cancer was cured, ultimately, and Jobs regarded this experience as “the closest I’ve been to facing death”. It helps prove the extraordinary meaning of this experience.
One of my favourite books being ‘The man who mistook his wife for a hat’ by Oliver sacks. This book explores the many -then -unconventional types of effects neurological diseases can have on the life of a patient from the perspective of the physician. I volunteer at a neuro-disability hospital and while I am yet to meet patients with cases like that mentioned in the book (the most interesting being the 90-year-old man with short term memory loss which causes him to believe he is 19 and has just won the war.) I was able to relate with my patients a lot more, this allowed me to do the best job possible as well as having as much fun with
Steve Jobs presents the importance of defining these principles in his commencement speech (2005). He summarizes failures and difficulties, and the lessons he learned. And in Jobs’ case, for instance, the value of the love towards his job and profession encouraged him to stay in even after being fired from his own company, and it also gave the power for not being afraid of “being a beginner again” and starting a new company. That means enjoying and loving your career will surely help you to be persistent, flexible and stay optimistic, as a result, you will discover and develop yourself and your creative abilities. This life value, love, also led him to take every chance and enjoy each minute, as he determined for himself to love what he was doing uncondi-tionally and until the end.
Great Storytelling Lu Jia Few commencement speeches enjoy more fame than Steve Jobs’ 2005 commencement address at Stanford. It was regarded highly both by his direct audience – as evidenced by their repeated cheers and applauses; and by the mass media – a Forbes article praised it “still inspirational after 10 years”. Video of the speech attracted 22 million views on Youtube and his famous ending quote “stay hungry, stay foolish” quickly became catchphrase of the year. Apart from Jobs’ status as a legendary inventor, what else might have contributed to the success of this speech? This essay attempts to evaluate Jobs’ commencement speech from the rhetorical perspective by exploring how the speech was crafted into a fitting response to its rhetorical
Jai used to encourage him, but when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer he started to think about himself, about what he had been, and about what makes him unique. He believed that the pancreatic cancer made him unique, but he concluded that the cancer did not make him unique because there was no arguing that. More than 37,000 Americans a year are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer alone. Despite his pancreatic cancer, he was really optimistic, but sometimes we got a little problem and we turn into a pretty negative person. We must learn about him.
