Bill & Steve together on stage – one for the history books

Posted by kaushalkurapati on May 31, 2007

Steve Jobs & Bill Gates were interviewed together on stage by Walt Mossberg at the “D” conference outside San Diego. This is one for the history books given the huge contributions each of them had on the technology industry. Great advice from the tech leaders regarding what makes people successful — one word “PASSION“.

“8:40 p.m.: Q.: Advice for the upcoming entrepreneur?
Gates: The idea of being at the forefront and increasing in size has been one of our greatest challenges. Our business is really about the passion.
Jobs: If you don’t love it, you’re going to fail. You’ve got to love it and you’ve got to have passion. And you’ve got to be a great talent scout, you can only build a great organization around great people.”

Being successful is all about having “passion” for what you do. This is the essence really. I have seen this in my own work; when I am passionate about what I do and really love it, thats when my best creativity comes forward. When I don’t like what I do, I don’t even come close.
