benefit from someone else’s success
Laurene Powell planted a garden, including a bed of of sunflowers.
Laurene’s husband was Steve Jobs. Steve and industrial designer Jony Ives walked through Laurene’s garden where they admired the sunflowers and how the flowers seemed to float above the plants.
Inspired, Jobs and Ive designed the sunflower iMac with the floating screen above a rounded base. Laurene Powell’s successful sunflower bed created serendipitous success for Steve Jobs, Jony Ive, and every Apple customer who enjoyed using a sunflower iMac.
