Steve Jobs: Innovation is Saying "No" to 1,000 things!!
« on: July 08, 2018, 02:05:47 PM »
We all are well known about Steve Jobs his reputed organizations "Apple'. The lesson  from jobs here is that if your ultimate goal is to produce outstanding work, no matter which industry you're in, you must be comfortable with the fact that most of the work you produce you'll have to throw out. Jobs says it best:

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I'm actually as proud of the things we haven't done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying "no" to 1,000 things.

Whether it's design or business strategy subtraction adds value. Nobody produces all masterpieces. You've got to edit it down and throw away the crappy stuff. Take away unnecessary hardware parts from your computer, unnecessary code and features from your app, unnecessary products from your offering, extra words from your presentation. This is not easy, it takes guts to take away a physical keyboard from a smartphone but the results can be astounding. Throw away the crappy stuff and focus on the good stuff only which targeted.
