Behance has a great tribute to Steve Jobs discussing his leadership and vision. He did not let obstructions distract his vision.
It must have been so seductive to stray at any moment and compromise to get it done. As people around him said, “Let’s just let that go because [fill in the great excuse here],” Jobs always somehow stayed course.
Perhaps the difference between Steve Jobs and the “visionaries” at other great companies was his ability to not only see what the future of technology could be, but to work toward that vision without obstruction.
Obstacles will surely come. How confident are you in your vision? Is it clear enough to work through, if not ignore, the obstacles?
