Steve Jobs – Just ask for what you want!


If you are a regular reader of JBRish, you know that I collect and enjoy good quotes. I have been a quote collector for more than fifty years. When I was in the classroom, I used quotes to stimulate dialogue at the beginning of my lessons.

I am always searching for that next best quote whether it be from an ancient pundit like Plato, a well-known author like Mark Twain or just someone who managed to capture an idea in a way that I found stimulating, poignant or motivational.

Steve Jobs is one of the people that I respect and appreciate. I have been a user of Apple Products almost from their inception. Jobs was a rare individual. Certainly he had is flaws, but his vision, drive and legacies far outweigh those human frailties.

I found the quote below in an online article from Inc., Steve Jobs Says There Is 1 Simple Habit That Separates The Doers from The Dreamers (and Leads to Great Success)

The article was in homage to Jobs’ legacy on the anniversary of his death eight years ago.

“Most people never pick up the phone and call. Most people never ask, and that’s what separates the people who do things from the people who just dream about them.”

The idea is that you need to learn to ask for what you want.
