Inspirational Quotes by Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett

Let’s ponder two inspirational business quotes by Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett.

“In the business world, the rearview mirror is always clearer than the windshield.”

Warren Buffett

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.  This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

Steve Jobs

Perhaps that’s why historians don’t figure large in the pantheon of successful entrepreneurs. Ditto statisticians and others skilled at examining the past.

The past isn’t where business is being conducted. Business is happening to us right now.  When we’re not thinking about right now, we’re thinking about tomorrow.  What’s going to happen tomorrow might not be clear, but it’s where we’ll be when we wake up on the morning.  So, by definition, we live in the moment and trust about tomorrow.  While we’re in the moment, why not take time to learn from what we’re doing?

Come to think of it, that’s a pretty inspirational way to live the rest of our lives.
