Apple's Jony Ive shares the lessons he learned from Steve Jobs
At the Vanity Fair Summit
"Steve Jobs was the most remarkably focused person I ever met in my life," Jonathan Ive said during the closing event of Vanity Fair's New Establishment Summit in San Francisco.
During the interview with Graydon Carter, the Vanity Fair editor asked Ive's to name three lessons he learned from Steve Jobs, his former boss at Apple. Ive – who rarely does interviews – stated that Jobs taught him that focus was the most important tool, "The thing with focus is that it's not this thing you aspire to, like: 'Oh, on Monday I'm going to be focused,'" said Ive. "It's every single minute: 'Why are we talking about this when we're supposed to be talking about this?"
Ive also mentioned how Jobs was one of the best leaders, saying he was "beautifully focused," with little time for "behavioral niceties."
