Hey all. I'm writing a piece and am struggling for an adjective to describe a "young Steve Jobs" (as the general public might perceive or envision him). I don't mean an adjective to describe his 'qualities' (e.g. driven, visionary) - but more - if you observed the younger, unknown Steve Jobs for 15 minutes and were to describe him to someone else, in a word.
Any takers?

My pleasure.  The funny thing is, and maybe it's just my misread of Isaacson, but I don't think anyone could have picked out Steve Jobs at 25 as one of the world's great business leaders.  There's a line, I think by Cindy Crawford: "Even Cindy Crawford isn't Cindy Crawford first thing in the morning."  Well, even Steve Jobs wasn't Steve Jobs at 25!  He needed to have his head kicked in a few times and really grow up to emerge the way he did.  Yet all the raw material had to be there.  So to the question "Are great leaders born or made," the answer is: Yes!

What do you say to a business acquaintance who wants an opinion on their hard-worked project, when it is just bloody awful, amateurish & embarrassing  - when they think its stellar?

A new record. USPS - Express mail Guaranteed overnight. Sent Thursday morning 9am. 4 days later, and counting- still in transit.

Reminds me of the line from Ocean's Eleven: "You tossers! You had ONE job to do!". 11 calls and 3.5 hours on the phone with customer service, with each "supervisor" profusely apologizing and swearing it will be delivered within the next few hours. This would be comical if it wasn't so tragic. Item was for a $4,000 medical device that had people waiting for it on friday.

USPS - here's a tip. For the definition of "Guaranteed Overnight" - look it up on the Fedex Website. I'd be pushing my congressmen to pull funding for USPS, except that the prospects of having all these incompetents in the commercial workforce might be even more terrifying.
