Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 29AUG11

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: leadership

Some of us get to make a more profound impact on our world than others. I’m thinking about you, Steve Jobs.
  • When Steve Jobs announced the iPod, I scoffed at it.  The iPod and iTunes transformed the world of music and how we distribute information. I missed it; Steve didn’t.
  • When Steve Jobs announced the iPhone, I scoffed at it. Did the world really need another smart phone?  I missed it; Steve didn’t.
  • When Steve Jobs announced the iPad, I wondered what he had up his sleeve.  He made the tablet computer worth owning.  No other tablet device has come close to creating the excitement of the Apple tablet computer. I missed it; Steve didn’t.
Steve Jobs has created a better world for his shareholders, his customers and his employees.  While Steve has not invented new things, he’s perfected the Apple products offered in the marketplace. That has made Steve and Apple thrive.

What are you doing to perfect your offerings and your business execution to make your company thrive?

Thought for the week:

“Some men storm imaginary Alps all their lives, and die in the foothills cursing difficulties which do not exist.” – E. W. Howe
