It has been over three years since Steve Jobs died.

Each has celebrated his legacy and aimed to share the secrets he used to build the largest company in the world; things like attention to detail, attracting world-class talent and holding them to high standards.
We think we understand what caused his success.
We dismiss usable principles of success by labeling them as personality quirks.
What’s often missed is the paradoxical interplay of two of his seemingly opposite qualities; maniacal focus and insatiable curiosity. These weren’t just two random strengths. They may have been his most important as they helped lead to everything else.

“A man can laugh a woman into bed, but funny females aren’t attractive.”
At least that’s what the Daily Mail made of a provocative new study on the role of humor in romantic attraction.

They outdid themselves.
And now, they’re inspiring others to unleash their inner superheroes through Superhero Me.
The initiative, by social documentary studio Logue and celebration design studio In Merry Motion, was started to empower pre-schoolers from less privileged families to develop a stronger sense of self.
It has evolved into a values-based movement helping children from all walks of life to build resilience as they imagine themselves as superheroes, craft a costume that they want and learn that dreams with effort can turn into reality.
