Wouldn’t you like to cultivate the same type of thinking, insight and advantages that Steve Jobs and Wayne Gretzky were able to create? You can’t duplicate these giants, obviously, but you can emulate the way they think.
The late Steve Jobs was enormously successful because he was able to take a bigger picture view of different technologies and markets and see unmet needs. He was a systems thinker, and a relentless tweaker. He was able to look at the same things as everyone else, but see opportunities that eluded the eyes of mere mortals.
For example, there were MP3 players prior to the advent of the iPod. What Jobs did was simplify the experience of buying, organizing and listening to music in digital form. With the iPhone, he had a vision that your personal communication device could be much more than a simple cell phone. He looked beyond the surface of “what is” and envisioned “what can be.”
In short, Jobs epitomized Apple’s famous ad slogan, “Think Different.”
Wayne Gretzky was an extraordinary hockey player – many would say the best to ever play the game. He said of his enormous success, “I always skate to where the puck is going to be.” Not where it is now. But where it’s going to be.
Could Gretzky see the future? Not really. What he had was a keen ability to discern subtle patterns. The move of an arm, a slight change in the way a player was starting to move his stick. The pattern of movement of the opposing players near him. All those things meant something to him. He was able to recognize patterns very quickly, which enabled him to anticipate what other players were going to do and to perform at an amazing level.
Can you think like Jobs or Gretzky? Definitely!
