Goodbye to a Great Leader

He shaped the way we use technology today. He made it cool. He made it beautiful. He made it fun. He made it personal.

Steve Jobs was the most innovative CEO of our time. He was a dynamic maverick who built and rebuilt Apple over the course of several decades. Apple is one of the most valuable companies in the world in terms of its market capitalization. Everybody talks about Steve Jobs’ creativity, innovation and passion. He was also a very inspiring leader, a visionary. He was known to be a micro-manager, but in a positive way.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.” –Steve Jobs.

And one more thing…

3 Apples changed the World. The 1st one seduced Eve, the 2nd one fell on Newton and the 3rd was offered to the World half bitten by Steve Jobs.

  1. Great article Jessica. Even with things like the Newton or the G4Cube, he was willing to risk something that was unsure and it didn’t stop his drive even when some products failed. Also, surrounding himself with people like J Ive who he could trust and push further made him a great leader. Not sure if we will see a man who could make as much technology as simple as he did.

  2. I heard a wonderful interview on CBC radio with a very close friend from his very early days. He said that Mr. Jobs truly cared about every small detail and how it would affect regular, every day people – not just the elitist “super user” set. He put highly complicated technology into the hands of the masses and made it accessible for everyone.
