Steve Jobs

THE GREATEST SECOND ACT IN THE HISTORY OF BUSINESS

By Jeffrey S. Young & William L. Simon

Steve Jobs - the name itself sparks off a series of flashes in your mind. All the revolutionary products of Apple find their seeds sown by this charismatic personality. Believed to be an outstanding speaker having a huge crowd of followers, Steve Jobs has always promised his fans thrills and excitements more than ever before in his public launch ceremonies of Apple's products. His style of work is simply mesmerizing. Let's have a look.

One of his employees:
We would have these management retreats at spectacular resorts. There would be a couple of days of meetings and at night we would open the bar and dance until we dropped. This wasn’t like working.

His vision has always been much ahead of times and that's what makes him one of the fore-runner leaders of the tech-world. He wanted people to realize what wonders computer can bring to the world of animation and here's the reaction:
When people saw [the Pixar computer graphics short] Luxo Jr., they said,”Oh, this is what computer animation is all about!”

Everybody wonders what makes someone so eligible to be considered as the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company. Here's something to take note:
Steve Jobs gets his face on Time magazine, he’s loved by Wall Street. He’d be a perfect guy to take over Disney.

Steve has always come up with new slogans to instill the right dosages of enthusiasm and commitment into his employees. No wonder he is an HR manager to die for:

Insanely great.

Let’s make a dent in the universe.

The journey is the reward.

Let’s be pirates.

This is going to be huge.

Beyond the box.

Reinventing apple.

Think different.

Failure expands your consciousness.

Steve's inspiration? Lend your ears to “Imagine” by John Lennon.
