3 life-lessons the 2017 Apple event taught me.

  • Build a personal brand.
    The kind of visibility that Apple products get, can be majorly attributed to the brand that Apple is perceived to be. Isn’t this valid in life too? The kind of exposure our work gets is attributed majorly to our personal brand. A personal brand isn’t something that I can point a finger at. It can be anything, from your blog to a company that you own.
  • Have a trump card.
    The ‘trump card’ of iPhone X made this year’s Apple event, exciting, exhilarating and entertaining. The same holds true for life, too. If you want the world to take notice of you, you need to separate yourself from the rest of the world. The best way to do this is to have a ‘trump card’, a unique skill that only a few people excel at.
  • Focus on plan A, but have a plan B.
    Every aspect of life has a finite probability of failure. When this failure comes knocking at our front door, we need to be ready with a back up plan. During the Apple event of 2017 the demonstration of iPhone X’s facial detection failed. Instead of figuring out a solution at that moment, Tim Cook reached out to a spare iPhone X and demonstrated that feature.
