Advice from the Lunatic Fringe

Advice from the Lunatic Fringe

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles... The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who at his worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." --- U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt (as cleverly quoted by my one time boss and all time mentor Gary Friedman in "Every Movement has a Lunatic Fringe")

Just as TR eloquently advocated bringing your convictions to life, so Steve Jobs turned his quest to innovate and his determination to "build bicycles for the mind" into one of the globe's most valuable companies... and along the way, I grasped a simple truth: some excel at the mechanics, others understand how people behave and feel - but if you want to succeed in consumer business, you have to master both.
