The Price of Greatness: Three takeaways from the biography of Steve Jobs

I just came across a fabulous post about Steve Jobs by @netgarden(come-on, Google, when are you going to expand twitter @names into Google+ handles? ideally retaining the twitter handle in parens - I'm not sure if the +Mark Sigal you're offering me is the right one).

I particularly like the ending, which speaks to the true nature of being an entrepreneur.


"There are many of us who consider ourselves to be entrepreneurs, inventors, and startup guys and gals, but I think this quote from Jobs captures the essence that there are no shortcuts to greatness. Greatness is dedication. It's a demand, and it's a detail. Or, as Jobs said:

"'I hate it when people call themselves entrepreneurs when what they're really trying to do is launch a startup and then sell or go public so they can cash in and move on. They're unwilling to do the work it takes to build a real company, which is the hardest work in business.'"
