Geniuses Read? You Bet!
Some of the world's most brilliant minds tend to have so many of the same habits, don't they?
I love hearing about iconic figures and from where they may get their inspiration, especially when it comes to literature. In our modern digital age, we do see less people reading actual books or talking about profound works that have resonated for them. Yet the power of immersing yourself into another person's words and/or story can create a lasting impact, as it had here for the late Apple founder, Steve Jobs. Knowing that his creations were informed by other geniuses, is truly inspiring.
Jobs' lifelong interest in the humanities gave Apple a human touch. By combining tech and the liberal arts, Jobs said that Apple was able to "to make extremely advanced products from a technology point of view, but also have them be intuitive, easy-to-use, fun-to-use, so that they really fit the users."
We need to see more of this. More geniuses...
