all about Steve Jobs.com

all about Steve Jobs.com | Inspiring, Creative People | Scoop.it

"Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. 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. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

 

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right.’ It made an impression on me, and since then, 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." - Steve Jobs (Stanford Commencement Address June 12, 2005)

He not only is a phenomenal writer, but he also encourages others to find the same solace in writing that he has. Furthermore, he goes the extra mile and encourages  those inclined, to write beyond the fear that usually holds us back. He is a blessing!

Queen Elizabeth I - On Her Own Terms

Queen Elizabeth I - On Her Own Terms | Inspiring, Creative People | Scoop.it

Queen Elizabeth I is a personal favorite of mine, as I was fortunate enough to be born on the same day (Sept. 7th) as she was. I can only hope to have a fraction of her remarkable determination and fortitude! Her over 40 year reign was reportedly the most successful and peaceful of the monarchy up to that point, due to her shrewd and brilliant governing decisions. She did it all without the encumbrance of husband or children!

The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo | PBS

The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo | PBS | Inspiring, Creative People | Scoop.it

I personally challange anyone to not be inspired after having learned about this remarkable woman's life. She was a bold, brash young woman who faced physical pain and disability that most of us would never dream of living through, due to a horrific streetcar accident. Bedridden for extended periods she learned to paint and used the medium to work through the pain. She walked again after being told by doctors that she never would! Frida used her love of life to go on to marry the legendary muralist Diego Rivera and continue to document her inner life in her paintings. Her life is truly inspirational!

 

This documentary explores the extraordinary life of 20th-century Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, who became an international sensation in the worlds of modern art and radical politics. Rita Moreno narrates the film.

STORIED LIFE OF MILLIE BENSON, THE | American Public Television

STORIED LIFE OF MILLIE BENSON, THE | American Public Television | Inspiring, Creative People | Scoop.it

Highly recommended documentary about the amazingly prolific Mildred Benson, the original writer of the 'Nancy Drew Mysteries'. One year she wrote 10 novels and had a baby all while working as a reporter! Think about that the next time you are tempted to make an excuse that you can't do what you love.

The life of Beatrix Potter - Peter Rabbit

The life of Beatrix Potter - Peter Rabbit | Inspiring, Creative People | Scoop.it

Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated the Peter Rabbit books. She was another woman who was guilty of doing things in the 1900's that were considered 'unseemly' for young ladies in England. She actually 'wrote' books! She lived her dream by putting her dreams on paper in ink and paint. The result is a connection between young and old that has spanned over generations. If you are someone who likes to 'doodle' and make up little stories in your head - Beatrix Potter may easily provide you with the inspiration to keep at your craft. For that is what you are doing, whether you believe it or not - you are not only crafting art, but you are crafting your life!

Changing New York: Photographs by Berenice Abbott, 1935-1938

Changing New York: Photographs by Berenice Abbott, 1935-1938 | Inspiring, Creative People | Scoop.it

Berenice Abbott's contribution to photography, generally, and the visual history of New York, specifically, is undisputed. Her life is fascinating, but to me the story of her quest to photograph New York as everyday people saw it, is extraordinary! She lived in Paris in the 1920's and she came upon Eugene Atget's photos of Paris. Berenice had been trying to find him to see his work. When she finally located his home she found out from the landlord that he just died! The landlord was just about to throw out many of his photographs! Berenice begged to take them off the landlord's hands. Thus was born her desire to document New York in the same manner the Master Atget had documented Paris! See, an idea can strike at any time so cherish your ideas when they come - they can only be born if you choose to give them life!
