One response to “Do You Really Want to Raise a Steve Jobs?”

  1. Amy Sandberg

    We all have faults and foibles. The question more aptly phrased is “when you add it all up, would the costs of a Steve Jobs-like personality outweigh the benefits”? My answer is yes. There are only a few people each century who have as much impact as he did. I suspect that in great measure, the flaws were necessary to the genius. I watched an interesting biography of the composer Philip Glass last night. He is obsessed with making music in the same way Jobs was obsessed with his design and inventions. That type of obsession doesn’t easily conform to societal expectations. Their courage comes from not caring whether it does or it doesn’t and doing what they’ve been called to do anyway.
