Top Quotes that will Change your life by Steve Jobs

My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

I’m as proud of many of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done. Innovation is saying no to a thousand things.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

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.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

That’s been one of my mantras—focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

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

Quotes by Steve Jobs The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

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 others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

We’re just enthusiastic about what we do.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

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

Quotes by Steve Jobs

For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

I'm convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

What is Apple, after all? Apple is about people who think ‘outside the box,’ people who want to use computers to help them change the world, to help them create things that make a difference, and not just to get a job done.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

Things don’t have to change the world to be important.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

I’ve always been attracted to the more revolutionary changes. I don’t know why. Because they’re harder. They’re much more stressful emotionally. And you usually go through a period where everybody tells you that you’ve completely failed.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

Bottom line is, I didn’t return to Apple to make a fortune. I’ve been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn’t going to let it ruin my life. There’s no way you could ever spend it all, and I don’t view wealth as something that validates my intelligence.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

My model for business is The Beatles: They were four guys that kept each others’ negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Quotes by Steve Jobs 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.

Quotes by Steve Jobs

Getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

The Irony Of Life

Irony of life…

Gurbaksh Chahal Helping the World

I recently came across a quote from Mother Teresa: ‘the good you do today may be forgot tomorrow; do good anyway’.  I began wondered how easy it is for people to implement this especially given their own life is full of obstacles. Thinking it would take me many lifetimes to find such individuals, to my pleasant surprise, I came across several individuals born & raised here in India.

One such person is Gurbaksh Singh Chahal. He is a 33 years old USA Indian Entrepreneur. At the age of 16, he started his first company. At the age of 24, he sold his second company to Yahoo! and at the age of 27, he started his third. Now he is off to starting his fourth company – despite many obstacles that have been laced on his path. Yet, he continues to stay positive, keeps a good heart and not only battles against the injustice against himself persistently, he continues to inspire the youth daily.  Irony is, with all the good this man has done in various communities, no one stood up to support him during his trying times. Are we that selfish of a society???

Today, we take great pride to highlight the accomplishment of this young man, who grew up in the States, yet comes back to his roots to help those in need.

In his recent trip to India last month (video link), he has helped the following institutions:

Delhi schools/ NGO visited 
1. http://www.aryagurukultg.com
it's a hostel where children from Naxalite areas from north eastern area of India are adopted and given food clothes and admitted to school fees is also taken care by the Gurukul 
Gurbaksh has commited aid to build one full floor of the hostel which would cost approximately INR 700000.

2. Pragati wheel school http://www.pragatiwheel.org
The school imparts free education to the underprivileged and is being run by Mr Raman Khanna 
Gurbaksh visited the school and donated 5 iPads for the use by the students and also committed upgradation to the existing Library which has not so many books.

3. Blind school in New Rajinder Nagar . The resident blind school for girls located on new rajinder nagar we helped them by providing each student supply for full month of needs such as toothpaste washing soap bathing soap tooth brush washing powder and awaiting next session to start to provide Braille slates which they require and will be provided by Gurbaksh

4. My perch Library located in sector 49 Noida and run solely by a single girl who helps the street kids to come and learn basic education needs for free 
Gurbaksh helped the library by getting water purifier for kids installed desktops for the kids to start learning computers and also iPads to learn and be at par with everyone around. The girl was speechless when Gurbaksh came to know she was running the school without having any resources to pay even the rent and handed over 2000 dollars in cash would try n get mail from her

5. Society for advanced studies and rehabilitation 
The society is located on faridabad and was given desktop computers laser printers to set up their computer requirements and helps the children with special needs and provide alternate teaching methods 

Amritsar 

1 Goodwill Public school 

The school has many students who belong to poor families and have no money even to buy uniform.

Gurbaksh supported the fees of the students and the uniforms besides the water cooler and other requirements of the school 

2 Dr earnest School
Dr earnest school is a free school where besides education alternate options of making families belonging to poor families start up their own livelihood by sewing etc 

They required laptops and iPads to which we supported and also needed financial help for a widow later which also was provided

3. S D school Tarn Taran 

The school has good number of students but no computer library and Gurbaksh committed setting up the same which is under process and also they required the sports Goods which were also committed

One of the girls was introduced by principal who was very bright Gurbaksh asked her about her Dream and she said she wanted to become Doctor Gurbaksh commited full scholarship for the Girl besides giving her an individual laptop to pursue studies the video is uploaded on the page as well for the girl Laadli

4 Baba Deep school pahukhand

The Baba Deep Singh memorial school were given ten desktops and 5 iPads to expand their school computer library setup with large no of students Gurbaksh addressed the students and also shared the success mantra there was question answer session also organized 

Mumbai

Magic Bus  http://www.magicbus.org
Magic bus Org runs program for student to livelihood and wanted support for backend office like computers printers etc which wee provided the Magic bus helps slums children to come out and get into main stream of studies 

2. Akanksha foundation 
Akanksha foundation runs free school with government aid for children from slums the school was given iPads for enabling teacher to teach the students with latest technologies

Besides we have lined up smile foundation which due to the restriction could not be covered and would be done in our next trip 

Handed out numerous scholarships and stipends to needy children, who are either parent-less or are in extreme difficulty to acquire education

He regularly supports students with scholarships, funds schools, support programs to prevent youth from using addictive substances

Recently on Facebook page, saw gratitude note of a widower thanking him for financial support for her three daughters, which inspired me to start this page.

 

 

 

His heart is not just bounded to the geographic of this land alone. He sends countless prayers to every part of the world, especially when an atrocity has struck them due to terrorism (Paris, Belgium, Mumbai, to name a few) or natural disasters such as earthquakes in Nepal.  On his social page, one can count to see his prayers as well as request to raise donations to help those in need. With a bit of research, I discovered he spent more than $1 million US dollars of his own funds to promote awareness of the Sikhs in the US, right after the Wisconsin shooting of the Gurdwara in 2012. (Here is the link showcasing his public announcement of supporting to spread awareness: http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/224248. Irony is even as a child he had been bullied. As a grown up, he continues to suffer the abuse of social media bullying). 

He rallied the entire community, regardless of faith, color, or race, to join forces to end hate, bring awareness of the religious differences in the US and promoted to spread this awareness through social media efforts. The message was simple – “End Hate”.  (Link to that video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKEdThFX1Tg)

Yet, the irony of the situation is, he is unable to end hate in this country or in the US. Rather, he has become one of the favorite targets of the social media cyber bullying.

In the recent times, ripping off any successful young person to shreds is the favorite part-time hobby of many Internet trolls as well as media companies (sadly). Any person, who is successful, has to be extremely caution, for they live in a glass cased home. Any troll, foe or friend can throw a stone at them, and then step back to watch them tumble down to nothing in minutes.

As reported by The Sun of UK, an online media publication, many celebrities continue to fall victims of the vile online bullying. Sadly, I have a feeling the same has happened with Gurbaksh. As I read numerous articles, one can only surmise his trolls and bullies intentions were laced by political motivation to bring him down. However, this young man refuses to being bullied by his media and US political system.

Regardless of Gurbaksh’s circumstance, he continues to be an example of resiliency.  He serves as a reminder to the rest of us, "when we do right, nobody remembers. When we do wrong, nobody forgets.” Yet, we should ‘continue to do good anyways’. 

I encourage you to send and share your stories of the way this organization has helped you. Send me these stories and I will promote them on this site.  In this manner, with the help of one site, one person, and a shared unity of gratitude, we can attempt of thank the divine for enabling people like Gurbaksh to continue do good unselfishly - regardless of vile attempts by political social media.
