social network for conservatives
After being reinstated as Apple’s CEO in 1997, Steve Jobs made one thing clear: If something or someone stood in the way of what he wanted, he wouldn’t hesitate to violate the rules of social or business interaction in order to get his result. Often berating and firing employees on the spot, verbally abusing strangers who got in his way, and parking in handicapped parking spots whenever he felt like it – Steve Jobs reminds us of the scripture from Matthew 16:26, “ What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?”
Although having departed our world over a year ago, according to the August 2012 Wired article “Am I Steve Jobs” (written by Ben Austen), the Jobs biography continues to be a best seller. And for some, his life story has “emerged as an odd sort of holy scripture for entrepreneurs – a gospel and an antigospel at the same time”. This from the life of a man that succeeded in developing great products that might be remembered for 50 years down the road, but may have failed his friends, family, and encouraged others to do the same. Yeah, real inspiring.
