We can all learn a great deal from the likes of Steve Jobs, he was not only an amazing inventor and designer who accomplished so much with Apple Inc, but also an amazing businessman. His views on how business should function and more importantly how to get the best out of your talent should be listened to.. We can all learn a few lessons:
“People say you have to have passion for what you are doing and its totally true… You do the reason is that its so hard… and you don’t any rational person would give up. Its really hard and you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So If you don’t love it and you aren’t having fun doing it ., you are going to give up
And that’s what happens to most people, if you really look at the ones that ended up being ‘successful’ in the eyes of society and the ones that didn’t, often it’s the ones that are successful loved what they did so they could perceiver when it got really tough and the ones that didn’t love it quit, because they are sane, who would want to put up with this stuff if it didn’t work, so it a lot of hard-work and a lot of worrying constantly and if you don’t love it you are going fail and that’s the high order bit… YOU’VE GOT TO LOVE IT.
The second thing you have got to be a really good talent scout, because no matter how smart you are you need really great team of people and you have to figure out how to size people up really quickly make decisions without knowing people to well, hire them and see how you do and refine your intuition and be able to help build an organisation which can eventually build itself because you need great people around you.”
A truly amazing minute and a half of inspiration!
Perhaps if we all listened more to the likes of Steve Jobs we really care become the leaders we aspire to be.
