Live success day by day

Every now and then an individual with extraordinary vision comes along. And through unflagging focus, courage, and persistence, that person leaves humanity with totally new and improved ways of doing things. Think of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and in our time, Steve Jobs.

We read biographies about such individuals because we are curious about how they succeeded, and we want to learn from them. I find it helpful when reading a biography to identify exceptional talents and qualities as evidence of God working in the individual, rather than to focus on the person’s human personality. Even exceptionally talented individuals often have flawed personalities, and Steve Jobs was no exception, as is abundantly clear throughout Walter Isaacson’s biography titled Steve Jobs.
