Steve Jobs’ Leadership Example

Frederick Allen, at Forbes shares how a very smart friend of his once said that “the whole difference between Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, and thus between Microsoft and PCs and Apple, was simply that Bill Gates thought everyone wanted to be a programmer, at least a little bit, and Steve Jobs said, oh, no, they don’t.” An article worth reading as it resonates very deeply with us as we re-launch our web site. Ahhhh, technology is wonderful when it works more for you, than you have to work for it.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
