Jony’s Patience

Last week, Dave Morin tweeted that the average tenure for employment at San Francisco right now is 15 months. I don’t know the source so I don’t know how accurate it is, but it sounds plausible. I’ve seen one report that tenure is as short as 1 year at companies like Google and Amazon, or 2 years at Apple. You can get some things done in 15 months, but not many things. Not big things. Not iPhone or Watch sized things.

Mike Kruzeniski post over the pages of Medium is, after some weeks of demoralizing news about Jonathan Ive role at Apple, one breath of fresh air. He remember us the sheer willpower, focus and dedication Ive should have spent in 23+ years at Apple building a company that can successfully build products he would be proud of.

Jony’s Patience. Read it, you won’t regret it …
