Got Apple, Steve Jobs?

“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
– Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, the American computer pioneer who cofounded Apple, is known for his intensity, his brashness, and his focus on elegant design. He was born in 1955 in San Francisco. At age 21, he and Steve Wozniac built the first Apple computer in his garage. Its successor, the Macintosh, introduced the mouse. After Jobs was ousted from Apple, he bought Pixar Animation, creator of Toy Story and Finding Nemo. On his return to Apple, he introduced the iMac and iPod, restoring the company’s luster. He now lives in California with his wife and three children.

Are you passionately following your dreams?

Being organized can help you keep your dream alive.

Leadership And Birthday Presents

So Simple, Even A 10-Year Old...
So Simple, Even A 10-Year Old...

Excellent Leadership requires a few basic fundamentals:

  • A clear, concise and compelling vision
  • A balanced approach
  • Simple, key, repeatable messages
  • Crystal clear expectations
  • Accountability
  • Continuous improvement
  • Fun

Last night we gave our son “his best birthday present ever”.

He said, “In your hand or in your pocket”.

Cheryl said, “Where did you learn that?”

“From the best”, he said.

Long before yesterday, I’ve been preaching, “In your hand or in your pocket”.

You lose an iPhone, and you become very unhappy, very fast.

You dilute or lose your leadership vision and, well, you get the picture.
