6 Things Pinoys Can Learn From Steve Jobs

1. Make things that are simple, fun and useful

If it wasn't for Steve, every gadget today would have more buttons, more wires or more menus – giving us more complications.

Make things simpler. The complex isn't impressive.

2. Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
It's not about coming up with something that is 'mas mura' or 'mas maganda'. It's not just about building a better mousetrap.

People buy Apple products not because it's cheaper or technically more superior, because it 'feels' better and is designed to work better.

3. Find the work you love. Don't just settle.

Avoid the "ganyan talaga ang buhay" pity parties. Watch this video.

4. Think differently.
"Iba mag-isip" is a phrase we negatively say. But it can also be something that we can flip positively. We don't need to do what other people (in our field) are doing. We Pinoys don't need to think alike. We can complement each other by thinking differently.

5. Don't waste your time living someone else's life. 
You are gifted to do something remarkable. Discover that gifting. 

Honor your parents, but you don't need to live the same lives or bring closure to their frustrations.

6. You can make a dent in the universe. 

Nobody expects you to change the world, but you can at least make a dent in your field or in the work that you do. Not everyone will, but you can be one who chooses to.
