Steve Jobs Said This Approach to Overcoming Adversity and Loss Never Let Him Down–and Made All the Difference In His Life

According to Jobs, life will sometimes hit you in the head with a brick. How you respond? That’s what matters most.

To paraphrase AC/DC, If you want adversity, you’ve got it. Businesses have closed, both temporarily and permanently. Employees laid off, both temporarily and permanently. Investment and retirement accounts have lost significant value.

As for the future? At best, uncertain. All we do know is that certain things have and will continue to change, some of them forever.

And maybe that can turn out to be, if not a good thing, then something you can at least look back on and remember as a turning point in your professional and personal life — depending on what you do in the days to come.

Getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again.

It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
