Steve Jobs speaks about the Secrets to Success in Business and Life
You have to have a lot of passion for what you're doing because its so hard. Without passion, any rational person would give up. If you're not having fun doing it, if you don't absolutely love it, you're going to give up. And thats what happens to most people, actually. If you look at the ones that ended up being "successful" in the eyes of society, and the ones who didn't, often times its the ones that are successful who love what they do, so they could persevere when it got really tough. And the ones that didn't love it, quit. Because they're sane, right? Who would want to put up with this stuff if you don't love it? So its a lot of hard work and its a lot of worrying constantly. If you don't love it, you're going to fail. The second thing is you have to be a really good talent scout. No matter how smart you are, you need a great team of passionate people around you. You need to size them up and hire them without knowing them too well, make decisions quickly, refine your intuition, and see how they do. You need to be able to help build an organization that an eventually just end up building itself. You need great people around you.
