When the Segway design team wanted some initial feedback on their prototype, they brought in Steve Jobs (Apple's now-retired CEO). Here’s what happened in the first 30 seconds.
‘Good morning to everyone,’ said Tim, smiling at the front of the table. ‘Before we start, we'd like to ask you to hold your questions until after each presentation…Each pitch is about ten minutes.’
‘I can't do that,’ said Jobs. ‘I'm not built that way. So if you want me to leave, I will. But I can't just sit here.’
When you sit in class, are you like Steve Jobs in a meeting? Do you want to ask questions and participate? Or can you just sit there and be perfectly happy? Neither approach is right or wrong. But your answer to that question will tell you a lot about which colleges are right for you.
