The thing about Steve, pt. 2

Back in October ’11 I wrote a brief, belatedly respectful note about Steve Jobs death:

There’s been a lot written about the passing of Steve Jobs. Probably too much, from people who knew too little.

Not enough recognition has been given to the fact that a guy out of Silicon Valley built the most important animation studio since Disney and in doing so created a Hollywood powerhouse.

Brent Schlender at FastCompany continues the theme that Jobs’ defining years were the ones that many consider to have been spent in the wilderness. (Steve Jobs: Into the wild.)

Having been there myself I can state with some certainty that “the wilderness” isn’t anything of the sort. But one certainly gains new perspectives and a maturity that only comes from taking the time to truly reflect upon one’s purpose.
