Steve Jobs rare videos: “Acting vs. failure” (and doing things instead of dreaming)

Too much has been written lately about Steve (Jobs): too many magazine covers and lots of people witnessing personal stories about him.

I guess there’s nothing like watching the very one Steve, listening to his words and try to understand how far he went from there.

These videos back to 1994, right in the middle of the NeXT era, just a three years before getting back to Apple as CEO.
In this 1994 film interview conducted by the Santa Clara Valley Historical Association, Steve Jobs emphasizes why it is so important to take risks.
His very words?

Most people never pick up the phone, most people never ask. And that’s what separates, sometimes, the people that do things from the people that just dream about them. You gotta act. And you gotta be willing to fail… if you’re afraid of failing, you won’t get very far.”

Here are some pretty statements about life (at large).

Thanks to Stefano for the post.
