Man of Vision

Time magazine ran an appreciative portrait of Steve Jobs:
Walter Isaacson:
"Something was either "the best thing ever" or it totally sucked. He could taste two avocados, indistinguishable to ordinary mortals, and declare one of them the greatest ever harvested and the other inedible." 
But what I think is the issue at hand is Jobs's sense of discernment.
Or this from a 2005 Stanford commencement speech:
" Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what your truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
