Steve Job's Secret was Karma Yoga

"I was worth over $1,000,000 when I was 23, and over $10,000,000 when I was 24, and over $100,000,000 when I was 25, and it wasn't that important because I never did it for the money."


"Apple's goal isn't to make money. Our goal is to design and develop and bring to market good products... We trust as a consequence of that, people will like them, and as another consequence, we'll make some money. But we're really clear about what our goals are."


"You know, my main reaction to this money thing is that it's humorous, all the attention to it, because it's hardly the most insightful or valuable thing that's happened to me."


Karma Yoga is the yoga of action, in which one should work for work's sake. Unselfish work leads to True Self. One must forget success and failure and this will lead to equanamity of mind.
