Over the past 40 years, the computer enterprise has
taken great leaps and limits to where it is today. One of the most influential
people throughout this time was Steve Jobs. He was an integral part of the rise
in personal computing. Also he was an excellent motivator for those working
under him and those inspiring to be like him.

Steve
Job is the chairman and chief executive officer of the well known Apple
Company. His great mind, ideas and innovation helped him to be successful. He
changed lives of people. His philosophy to change the world made him the person
who he is now and put himself in a journey towards success. The factors that
contributed in his success and failure in his life made him more motivated in
all aspects concerning with his work.

I
will not take the same path as Steve Jobs because it is not easy to take a
career path especially in the field of technology. I’m not sure if I’ll put
myself into a computer business like him it would be a hit or could get any
popular because computer businesses nowadays are so at the top that if you’ll
try to make a business that involves computers, you are not sure of your
success into that business.

 As we all know that numerous of operating
systems right now are out in the market and there are also open-source
operating systems that can be downloaded through internet. So the question came
to my mind and I ask myself, why would I take the same career path as Steve
Jobs if there are a lot of these kinds of computer software out there? Then I
could put in the picture that if I will make a business like him, I have a
small chance of excelling in that kind of business.

There are many factors
of his personality that I don’t like in Steve Jobs that gives me another reason
why I can’t take the same career path as his. Like him being a short tempered
boss to his subordinates. I can’t be like that when I’m a boss I would be much
patient to my subordinates and understand them as well because as a leader to
them I must lead them in the right direction that they will be more motivated
under my leadership and also to gain their trust for the good of my company.

Finally, the last thing
I don’t really like in him as stubborn person; he never listens to others
opinions. Wanting much to decide what you really want to be in the future,
there is no acquiring that you can be in a career in the future the way you
planned it to be because the things happen in this life of ours are just
choices we need.

4. Why it is important for industry
people to focus on technology to enhance their industry improvement?

small businesses connected to their customer bases and enhance internal

restrictions of prints ads in terms of achieving new and existing customers.
Internet marketing ranges from easy informational website to advertising on

a newsletter, coupons or commercial enterprise. Mobile advertising is a rather
new frontier that reaches people through text messaging, marketing on cellular
packages and supplying branded applications that tie clients into what’s
occurring with the enterprise in a fun and entertaining way.

Productivity

Small enterprises need to wring each ounce of
productivity out in their operations and generation tools help employees get responsibilities
done more quickly. This may range from printing out marketing substances to offering
customer support through email or online chat. The key is to keep employees
focused while the use of technology and to apply it appropriately with the aim

Businesses use e-mail to answer questions, offer online chat to help clients that

customers a preference of approach to contact the company. Technology is
powerful but keeps the people element in mind and don’t hold back on training
employees in effective customer strategies and the proper use of the

and flex time as advantages. Colleagues can stay in touch from different
locations and when working extraordinary hours by using email, online
collaboration equipment and mobile computing devices. Within the office, employees
can share virtual files, convey records via presentations and create training
videos to bring new employees up to speed.

easiest conferencing strategies but development in recent years has brought
web conferencing to the fore. Web conferencing can bring together web cams,
audio and collaborative online meeting areas to create an exceptionally

documents and recreate the in person meeting experience no matter where
