Steve Jobs The Genius Who Changed Our World
I read a Magazine Published By Time Magazine About Steve Jobs and how he changed our world. The magazine goes into depth about the inventions that Steve Jobs created that changed our world. Think about everyone that uses an iPhone or Mac or iPad and other Apple devices. They are everywhere. Part of what made Jobs so successful in the business world was his need to be in control. “To say that Jobs is a control freak is just a start” said Author Richard Stengal. Every bit of apple devices, even apple stores, the perfection and detail in every facet of the company is brilliant and mesmerizing.

Taking short cuts may work at first but not in the long run, and it is important to always look at ways to improve the goods and service. Perfectionism isn’t always the best thing for an entrepreneur but being precise is.
Another thing I learned is that you have to love what you do and be motivated. Steve jobs loved inventing things and improving things to make the world a better place.
