How does one single man accomplish what Steve Jobs accomplished. It is almost blasphemous to think that one can do what he did! Starting with nothing except a mantra of “focus and simplicity” he not only created a business empire (Apple), and an animation powerhouse (Pixar), but he set the world on fire with a hunger for more!
