The Monday Morning WHIP // 148

Aw, Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com). Steve, sad. Sigh (http://www NULL.youtube NULL.com/watch?v=yBZWKjj2vWY&feature=related).

When I wandered into Mattingly & Partners in the early 90’s to write copy for Myer catalogues my tool of trade was an Apple Macintosh.

When I decided to leave JWT to go try my luck in London I wrote my resignation letter on a Bondi Blue iMac.

And last week, when I learned of the passing of Steve Jobs, I did so via Twitter on an iPhone.

So it seems only right, that I share with you some truly inspirational thoughts from Steve in this week’s Whip:

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something.”

“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful from the non-successful is pure perseverance.”

“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?”

“I’m as proud of what we don’t do as I am of what we do.”

“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.”
