Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Tim Cook

by Scott Edward Walker on May 30th, 2012

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we present Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple and an extraordinary leader.

In this interesting, 15-minute clip (courtesy of AllThingsD), Tim shares some interesting insights, including:

  • we’re in the “first inning” of the iPad;
  • the tablet market will surpass the PC market;
  • “products are about tradeoffs” and “you have to choose”
  • Steve Jobs taught that “focus is key”;
  • Steve also taught that “the joy is in the journey”;
  • “we don’t want to be the developer for the world”;
  • the patent wars have “gotten crazy”;
  • we put “all of our wood behind a few arrows”;
  • Steve was a “genius and a visionary” who is irreplaceable; and
  • “I am who I am.”

I hope you enjoy it.  Many thanks, Scott
