“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs
It’s with a heavy heart I read the news that Steve Jobs is stepping down from his role as CEO of Apple. I am a big Jobs fan, not just because of his amazing resilience (my favorite leadership attribute) but because of his incredible impact on society as a visionary leader.
I share this video with you for inspiration! As I write this post on my MacBook Pro, listening to iTunes, just having put down my iPhone and gearing up to read later on my iPad, I am amazed at the achievement of Job’s “I want to put a ding in the universe.” desire.
Thank you Steve Jobs!
