  1. The ability to stand up even to the voice of a hostile authority and the confidence to listen and pursue your own callings is a characteristic of many great leaders I have met or read about.

    • It is just these types of critical thinking skills that are socialized out of children in elementary school. Those fortunate enough to have a strong genetic predisposition or a family that tolerates challenges to authority are the ones fortunate enough to become leaders rather than followers. George Bernard Shaw once said, “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” So let it be said of Steve Jobs.

      I appreciate your insight, Basil.
