Sometimes you have to say no to the good so you can say yes to the best.
Steve Jobs taught me that.
In a recent interview with Fortune, he made a similar distinction:
“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve 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.
You’re defined by what you decline.
Doesn’t make you close-minded, inflexible or stiff.
And when you focus yourself, you free yourself.
And when you free yourself, you free the world.
Thank you, Steve Jobs for freeing us.
