“I grow little of the food I eat…” An email by Steve Jobs to himself

An email from Steve Jobs to himself

Steve Jobs, the American entrepreneur best known as the co-founder and driving force behind the technology company Apple often wrote emails to himself to capture what was on his mind. This one, from 2010, is a set of core values that motivated him throughout his life.

This email is part of a new project, the Steve Jobs Archive, which celebrates the man’s life and visionary influence by collecting many of his writings, speeches, and thoughts. For example, here is Steve’s “crazy ones” voiceover for Apple’s famous Think Different campaign.
