Steve Jobs Quotes - I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones

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

Unless you have a lot of passion about this, you're not going to survive. You're going to give it up.

36. Apple is a $30 billion company, yet we’ve got less than 30 major products. I don’t know if that’s ever been done before.

Certainly the great consumer electronics companies of the past had thousands of products.

But that’s not what it means at all.

It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are.

You have to pick carefully.
