Senior vice president of retail at Apple, Angela Ahrendts, talks about her focus forward and how looking ahead and staying ahead of the curve is the role of leaders.
(hopeful music)…- You talk about giving back,…you wrote a great post for International Women's Day…where you talked, it was a letter to your daughters.…And one of the things you told them was…"Don't look back. Always be looking forward."…You were the CEO of Burberry,…you took a massive leap to try to talk Tim Cook…out of hiring you, then you went to Apple.…Do you really never look back?…Do you ever think, you know,…I was CEO now I'm doing this, what is my path,…what did my path teach me about where to go next?…Or are you always just thinking…about what's coming down the road.…
- 95% of the time I try to look forward.…I think looking back just, it's over, right?…I don't want to ever say I wish I would have.…I'd rather live in the moment, do everything.…And the older I get, Daniel,…the faster I feel I got to go.…I mean it's, you know age and experience are a funny thing…but I think looking back you get yourself in a spiral.…What if this, and what if that and what if,…there's nothing you can do about it.…It's over. It's gone.…
