Apple achieved all of that because of the Focus and decisive leadership provided by Jobs:
One of Jobs’s great strengths was knowing how to focus. “Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do,” he said. “That’s true for companies, and it’s true for products.”
1- Focus. Everyone is focusing on something valuable or trivial.
2- What to Focus on. Few knows what to focus on.
