IN HONOR TO THE MAN WHO TURNED THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT INTO A SUCCESSFUL BRAND

Based on the text with a good analysis from to Rod Bauer from Bauer group, there are several lessons we should take into consideration in order to be more successful in the business world. Especially, those who admire Jobs and think he was the most effective CEO, should rethink about their working strategies regarding these facts:
Lesson #1 — Creating great products requires patience
Lesson #2 — Think big
Lesson #3 — Focus on your strengths
Lesson #4 — Think different
Lesson #5 — Technology by itself is not enough
Apparently, many people in Silicon Valley give all their attention on writing code or learning how to run a company, but not on “learning how to learn”. What made Steve Job very successful was the way he gave value on learning culture, music, film, calligraphy, design and architecture. So, we have many things to learn from him, other than remaining as so-called admirers.
