When shrines are created for a corporate leader you know that we have entered a new era for business.
An era where business is about far more than just making money, and where entrepreneurs are the visionaries who have the power to change the world.
It isn’t governments who are going to get us out of the current broken mess – they are far too busy trying to preserve the status quo.
It is individuals – taking inspired action to create change and lead the people into the new era.
At a time where our schools are still teaching us that complexity and detail are what wins grades and where governments churn out 68 page dossiers to express what could be summed up in an A4 page, I love this quote by Steve Jobs:
“That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”— BusinessWeek interview, May 1998
In case you haven’t seen it here is Steve Job’s famous Stanford Speech -which talks about synchronicity, faith and passion; about keeping going when the ‘corporate’ world rejects you and about living each day as if it were your last. The new era is not so much about Business Plans and logical thought through 3 year forecasts as dreaming big and manifesting everything you need along the way; living in faith and working from the heart not the head.
RIP Steve Jobs 1955 to 2011
