I think one word Jobs left out in this quote (but that he also implies) is “givers.”
Givers ARE the crazy ones.
We sacrifice time. We give 110% to anything we invest in or put our mind to. It’s not about us, it’s about legacy. It’s not about “what will this cost me?” or “what’s in it for me?” It’s about the overall goal. It’s about the other person or people.
And we never expect 110% in return. It’s just our default.
But you know what?
Like Jobs relays — the givers are the ones who win in the end.
This is because the more we contribute — the more we IMPACT, the more we leave a mark. The reminder of Jobs remains at our fingertips each and every day. Jobs isn’t remembered for his bank account, his awards, his house… or anything he received.
He is who he is because of what he gave us.
“In the end, what matters most is not what we gathered for ourselves. Our legacy is what we’ve given away.” — Rev. Sean Gunn
