Elon Musk Quotes:

  • “I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.”  ~Elon Musk.

  • “It is a mistake to hire huge numbers of people to get a complicated job done. Numbers will never compensate for talent in getting the right answer (two people who don’t know something are no better than one), will tend to slow down progress, and will make the task incredibly expensive.” ~Elon Musk.
  • “I do think there is a lot of potential if you have a compelling product and people are willing to pay a premium for that. I think that is what Apple has shown. You can buy a much cheaper cell phone or laptop, but Apple’s product is so much better than the alternative, and people are willing to pay that premium.” ~Elon Musk.
  • “I think the best way to attract venture capital is to try and come up with a demonstration of whatever product or service it is and ideally take that as far as you can. Just see if you can sell that to real customers and start generating some momentum. The further along you can get with that, the more likely you are to get funding.” ~Elon Musk.
  • “If something is important enough, even if the odds are against you, you should still do it.” ~Elon Musk.

  • “We care about every worker in our worldwide supply chain… What we will not do – and never have done – is stand still or turn a blind eye to problems in our supply chain. On this you have my word.” ~ Tim Cook, Apple CEO Tim Cook Supply Chain guru.
  • Too often people think about intuition as the same as relying on luck or faith. At least as I see it, nothing could be further from the truth. Intuition can tell you, of the doors that are open to you, which one you should walk through. But intuition cannot prepare you for what’s on the other side of that door.” ~ Tim Cook.
  • “Apple has changed every day since I have been here. But the DNA of the company, the thing that makes our heart beat, is a maniacal focus on making the best products in the world. Not good products, or a lot of products, but the absolute best products in the world. In creating these great products we focus on enriching people’s lives – a higher cause for the product.” ~ Tim Cook, Supply Chain Guru.
  • “Let your joy be in your journey – not in some distant goal.” ~ Tim Cook, CEO Apple.
  • “Creativity and innovation are something you can’t flowchart out.” ~ Tim Cook.
  • “My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.” ~ Steve Jobs.
  • “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ~Steve Jobs.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, Supply Chain Expert

Apple CEO Tim Cook is following Steve Jobs as the top person at Apple.  This is no easy task considering Steve Jobs’ cult following.  Steve Jobs did amazing things at Apple and Tim Cook is doing very well also.  Apple continues to do amazing things under Tim Cook.

Tim Cook was Apple’s Chief Procurement Officer and he now has the top position at Apple.  Steve Jobs brought in Tim Cook in 1998 to make Apple’s Supply Chain lean and agile.  Steve Jobs wanted something similar to what Michael Dell did with Dell Computer’s Supply Chain.  The Apple Supply Chain is now considered one of the best in the world.  Many would say the best in the world.  Tim Cook is one of the main reasons for the supply chain at Apple being so good.

It’s not just saying yes to the right products, it’s saying no to many products that are good ideas, but just not nearly as good as other ones.” ~ Tim Cook, Supply Chain Expert
  • “Apple Stores Offer the Best Buying Experience and Customer Service On The Planet.” ~ Apple CEO Tim Cook

  • “We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do certain things, we can accomplish those goals.” ~ Stephen Covey

You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”  ~ Thomas J. Watson
  • “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.

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs
