First, Do what you love. According to Simpson, “Steve worked at what he loved… Every day.”
Second, Do it yourself. Jobs knew when NOT to delegate. As his sister says, “Even as a young millionaire, Steve always picked me up at the airport.” Connecting with friends, family and life’s ordinary events is an important work-life balance skill.
Third, Cultivate your interests. Despite his success, Jobs took time to cultivate outside interests. His sister asks, “What other C.E.O. … has a favorite David Austin rose?” Investing in outside interests makes you more well-rounded and better able to give your work your all.
And fourth, Cultivate your love. Jobs’s love for his family was always his primary concern, assuring that his work-life balance came naturally.
