Steve Jobs' Biggest Mistakes Exemplify the "Innovation Journey"

Principle #2 in my recent book, Living in the Innovation Age, states that innovation is a journey rather than a destination. I provide numerous examples of how successful innovators battled through a series of failures to ultimately succeed. The list includes individuals such as James Dyson (vacuum cleaners) and companies such as Google (social media). A recent HBR blog titled "Five of Steve Jobs's Biggest Mistakes" by Peter Sims provides yet another example of a highly successful innovator, Steve Jobs, who too battled epic failures of his own along his long and illustrious innovation journey.
