Words of Wisdom from Jony Iveby Scott Edward Walker on September 14th, 2015
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 Jonathan (“Jony”) Ive, the Chief Design Officer at Apple and a close friend and collaborator of Steve Jobs.
In this brief interview from last year with Graydon Carter of Vanity Fair, Jony shares a couple of important lessons he learned from Steve: (i) focusing, including learning to say “no”; and (ii) putting your work ahead of your ego — i.e., how you believe you are perceived by other people.
I hope you enjoy it. Cheers, Scott
