There is a thriving industry in this country that mass-produces jealousy of Steve Jobs. You hear “commercials” for the “product” every day. Jobs is a bastard. Jobs is imperious. Jobs never created anything. Jobs demeans everyone he meets. Jobs told Martha to sell on inside information. Jobs made Paris Hilton drive with Grey Goose on the brain.
Do you know how much Jobs cares about this water cooler crap? Put the smallest possible living organism under a microscope and what you see amounts to a googleplex more than Jobs cares about the anti-Jobs bile. Which is precisely the amount of attention it deserves. Now this blog is not really about Jobs, because I couldn’t care less about him. But I am highly impressed with highly successful people and Jobs fills that bill cubed.
Jobs set out in life to join the elite– the top 25. Millions do the same; 25 make it. How do they do it?
- They never listen to petty chatter
- They have no time for losers
- They never play by the rules…they write them
- They dream and innovate. Dream and innovate!
- They are self-made kings and queens
And what do they get for all of this drive and guts and determination and originality? Just all the fun, all the money, and all the power in the world.
And the knowledge that they make a difference.
