Certainly great advice by Markkula, but it also took the Jobs' unflinching fearlessness to willingly and continually disrupt "who we are now" for the promise of "what we could / should become." Jobs' ability to bet everything on his gut was awe-inspiring.

@jkretch Saw the movie Saturday. I'll be back to relive the visuals on IMAX. Though I agree the substance and dialogue were lacking, it was in line with the Hollywood need to recoup the money invested -- what was that, $750,000,000? Sound design was also gooey and trite.
