Recommended Book Review: P.U.S.H for Success

This is a very easy book to read and gives very simple hints and tips which I believe have helped me to achieve my dreams and hope can also help you achieve yours.

In a world so far away from the one she took by storm, Saira began life in a town with no electricity or water pipes.

Steve has always tried to teach others, contrary to the well publicised and in some case’s true image making him out to be a stiff and cruel man. Giving numerous lectures and interviews over the years, and a well known Stanford commencement address in 2008, there are a lot of quotes about life lessons from Steve Jobs to be learnt. I’ve listed a few below. » Read more..

Steve Jobs – How To Be Intelligent

Steve Jobs Academy of Achievement

“Have you ever thought about what it is to be intelligent?” Steve once said at The American Academy of Achievement many years ago. Speaking on general success, as well as life impacts on the world, innovation and creativity, Steve explained his views on what it really is to be intelligent.


To begin with, Steve suggests how memory is often an important and in fact vital factor of intelligence, saying “It seems to me, a lot of it seems to be memory.” Although this is not his main point, it is certainly one to recognise.
