We’re reading more and more that Steve Jobs, for all his dedication to Apple, was even more dedicated to his wife and family.
Here’s a touching detail surrounding the story of how he skipped a business meeting in 1990 to take his wife on their first date as reported by Gizmodo:
“About this time, Jobs meets Laurene Powell when he speaks at a class at Stanford business school. They exchange numbers. Jobs had a business dinner that night. ‘I was in the parking lot, with the key in the car, and I thought to myself, If this is my last night on earth, would I rather spend it at a business meeting or with this woman? I ran across the parking lot, asked her if she’d have dinner with me. She said yes, we walked into town and we’ve been together ever since.'”
