The world lost a true visionary with the death of Steve Jobs (1955-2011) on Wednesday. As entrepreneurs, we all wish to come up with an idea to change the world. But an idea alone will not change anything. To become reality, ideas must be accompanied by will, leadership, and effective execution. Steve Jobs did this as well as anyone who has ever walked the planet, and will be remembered along with the likes of Henry Ford and Alexander Grahm Bell. Harvard business students will study his genius for generations, maybe forever.
At Webgistix, we have always taken our inspiration from industry leaders such as Steve Jobs. We have a huge banner hanging in our warehouse with a picture of Steve and a quote from him that says "Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower." When I heard of his passing I felt a strong sadness come over me. The death of Steve Jobs is a great loss for humanity.
