In 1985, I bought Apple’s new 128K Macintosh computer. This was my first computer purchase and it established the benchmark for how computers should propel humans to new heights of creativity, innovation and productivity. It was an epiphany!
The MAC and DOS
At home, using the Macintosh, anything my mind conceived could also be created
and developed on my Macintosh. But at work, where Microsoft DOS was imposed, this was not the case. It was frustrating. The DOS platform limited creative potential and diminished productive output. Complaints to my boss were futile. He was a die-hard DOS power-user with little knowledge of the Macintosh’s power and potential.
Taking Matters Into My Own Hands
I sensed that my career was being impinged due to the lack of creative and productive output at work. So what did I do? I simply brought my own Macintosh to work – every day. Silly? I suppose. But it enabled the innovative continuity required to ensure career growth. Thank you Steve Jobs!
