Vision First . . . Then Innovation Follows . . .

I found this old video of Steve Jobs in the early years of Apple; at the time of this video, there were about 50 employees.

I think you’ll enjoy seeing a young, undaunted man trying to convince himself of his vision.

I like hearing about the journey driven by his vision which drove his innovation.

I like this quote too:

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

as well as other quotes about how the Apple II won’t be obsolete (18:42) and that they won’t make people buy newer versions of everything again.

Knowing the truth, you can seem him struggling with the decision to either try and educate a stranger about the necessity of making things obsolete or tell the stranger what he wanted to hear; which is what Jobs did.

Here’s the video . . . enjoy:
