A story that not too many know is of his push for the perfect touch screen. In the development of the first iPhone all details and materials went through Steve Jobs. the final product was almost finished, one of his employees ands him an iPhone and said "This is it, congratulations" He looked at it and was so dissatisfied that he halted production and stopped everything for weeks until they finally fixed the touch screen and made it the mark of the iPhone. He gave up potential profits to make something perfect. This goes back to an idea from "Power Of Habits" by Charles Duhigg(Check out my Blog Review of it Here), don't work for money, work for spreading the idea you want to convey, inspire others to see the way you see. Steve Jobs wanted everyone to enjoy electronics as much as he did., and seeing the world today I would say he succeeded
So to follow this story up here are three steps to "Make It A Reality"
- Envision your success, see where you want to be or what you want to do
- Once you see where you want to be make ANOTHER list about how you want to get there.
- Obtain resources and gain workers, helpers and anything you think of to achieve it, but use every ounce of energy and passion you have to convey your message to others.
