I just finished reading “iLeadership: The Steve Jobs Way” in which the former Senior Vice President of Apple Computer, Jay Elliot  revisits Steve Jobs remarkable career with its ups and downs. He describes what made Steve Jobs leadership so special. One example is the absolute attention to detail. Jay Elliot describes how Steve jobs visited  the first New York Apple store before its opening and had the flooring redone because he didn’t like how it looked. Naturally I had to check how the store looks and realized that so many of the Apple stores around the world are quite nicely designed.  Note: All of the images below are property of Apple, Inc.

 “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
