Steve Griggs, founder and CEO of Steve Griggs Design; NYC’s premier landscape designer transforming backyards and rooftop gardens into private getaways: 

One of the biggest takeaways I’ve learned from leaders like Jobs and Buffett is the power of “no.” Buffett says “no” 99 percent of the time. Steve Jobs was as proud of the things Apple didn’t accomplish as much as the things they did. As he put it: “Innovation is saying ‘no’ to 1,000 things.”
