Steve Jobs on "Getting it."

Flexibility pays off
"Blessed are the flexible for they shall never be bent out of shape"-Unknown Author
A beautiful quote that truly fits in with the age we are living in.Technology is moving so rapidly and adapting to these quick changes has become a primary survival skill. Remember when we used to wait days, weeks or months to receive a letter? Now it does not even take a stamp to send a letter. Life has become so integrated with electronic media that if you do not keep yourself updated on developments, you might feel like a visitor from another planet. Flexibility pays off more than ever in this day and age.
Persistence makes the load lighter
"That which we persist in doing becomes easier; not that the nature of the thing itself has changed, but that our power to do it has increased." Ralph Waldo Emerson
-This pretty much echoes the first quote by Aristotle. Persistence seems to be an ingredient to getting things done with facility. I hope you find these quotes as enlightening and uplifting as I did.
Have a good one!
