Steve Jobs “The AI”

Yes, I gotta admit this is mainly written by AI, but the key message is based on my own learning and experience in life. So, I asked AI to write this post as if it were Steve Jobs and to write about the law of give and take.

Kenz: “Now the stage is yours, Steve!”

Steve Jobs The AI: “Thanks, Kenz, for the introduction.”

As some of you may know, I’m Steve Jobs and you might consider me a visionary and a leader. I want to share with you, a principle that changed my life and career. It’s the power of #give and #take.

This Principle Helped Me Change The World.

And it can help you too. Do you want to know how?

Here’s how it works:

  • You have a vision. You need help from others to make it happen.
  • But people don’t work for free. They want something in return for their help.
  • So, how do you get them to help you? Simple. You give them something they want. You make them an offer they can’t refuse.
    • Something that inspires them, challenges them, or rewards them.
    • Something that aligns with their values, goals, or passions.
    • Something that benefits both of you.

This is the power of give and take.

It’s Not About Manipulation.

It’s about value creation.
It’s a win-win situation.
It’s a principle that works in any situation.

Let me tell you a story:

A story about how I created the #iPhone with AT&T.

A story about how I used the power of give and take to make it happen.

I used this principle to create the iPhone with AT&T.

  • I wanted to create the iPhone. I needed help from AT&T to make it happen.
  • They were reluctant to work with me. They had their own rules and regulations.
  • I didn’t give up. I gave them something they wanted.

🤝 I gave them exclusivity. I gave them a chance to be part of history. I gave them a share of the profits.

🤝 They agreed to work with me. They gave me what I wanted. They gave me freedom to design the iPhone as I envisioned it.

This is how the power of give and take helped me create the iPhone.

And it can help you too, believe me. It’s not complicated. It’s common sense. It’s a life-changing principle.

And I’m going to show you how to do it with a step-by-step guide.

Are you ready? Let’s go!

Step 1: Find your vision

Your vision is your ultimate goal. It’s what you want to achieve. It’s what problem you want to solve. It’s what value you want to create.

  • What are you passionate about?
  • What are you good at?
  • What are you curious about?
  • What are the needs or gaps in the market or society that you can fill?

Write down your answers and try to summarize them in one sentence.

For example, Steve Jobs The AI’s vision was to create products that combine technology and design in a way that makes people’s lives better.

Step 2: Find your partners

Your partners are the people who can help you achieve your vision. They are the people who have the resources, skills, or influence that you need.

To find your partners, ask yourself these questions:

  • Who are the potential customers or users of your product or service?
  • Who are the potential suppliers or providers of your product or service?
  • Who are the potential collaborators or supporters of your product or service?

Write down their names and contact details and try to categorize them into three groups:

  • Primary partners: These are the most important and essential partners for your success. They are the ones who will directly benefit from or contribute to your product or service.
  • Secondary partners: These are the less important but still useful partners for your success. They are the ones who will indirectly benefit from or contribute to your product or service.
  • Tertiary partners: These are the least important but still helpful partners for your success. They are the ones who will occasionally benefit from or contribute to your product or service.

For example, Steve Jobs The AI’s primary partner for creating the iPhone was AT&T, his secondary partner was his loyal fan base, and his tertiary partner was his marketing team.

Step 3: Find their needs

Your partners’ needs are what they want from you. They are what motivates them. They are what are their goals or challenges.

To find their needs, ask yourself these questions:

  • What are their pain points or problems that they want to solve?
  • What are their desires or aspirations that they want to achieve?
  • What are their fears or risks that they want to avoid?

Write down their answers and try to prioritize them into three levels:

  • High-priority needs: These are the most urgent and important needs for your partners. They are the ones that will make them say yes to your offer without hesitation.
  • Medium-priority needs: These are the less urgent but still significant needs for your partners. They are the ones that will make them say yes to your offer with some consideration.
  • Low-priority needs: These are the least urgent but still relevant needs for your partners. They are the ones that will make them say yes to your offer with some hesitation.

For example, AT&T’s high-priority need was exclusivity, their medium-priority need was a share of profits, and their low-priority need was a chance to be part of history.

Step 4: Find your offer

Your offer is what you can give them that they want. It’s what you can offer that is unique, compelling, or beneficial.

To find your offer, ask yourself these questions:

  • What are your strengths or advantages that you can leverage?
  • What are your values or principles that you can align with theirs?
  • What are your benefits or outcomes that you can deliver?

Write down your answers and try to match them with their needs.

For example, Steve Jobs The AIs’ offer to AT&T was freedom, support, and value.

Step 5: Negotiate your deal

Your deal is how you can make it a win-win situation. It’s how you can balance your interests and theirs. It’s how you can communicate your value proposition clearly and convincingly.

To negotiate your deal, follow these steps:

  • Prepare your pitch: Write down your main points and supporting evidence. Use facts, stories, and emotions to persuade them.
  • Present your pitch: Speak confidently and respectfully. Use simple and clear language. Use visuals and demonstrations to show them.
  • Handle objections: Listen actively and empathetically. Acknowledge their concerns and address them. Use questions and feedback to understand them.
  • Close the deal: Summarize your offer and benefits. Ask for their agreement or commitment. Thank them and follow up

I can’t wait to see what amazing things you will create with give and take!

“Make me proud, tomorrow me!”
