Angela Ahrendts, New Senior Vice President of Retail, gives future Apple executives some much needed 68 million dollar job transition advice.

Also, trust your instincts and emotions. Let them guide you in every situation; they will not fail you. Never will your objectivity be as clear or your instincts sharper than in the first 30-90 days. Cherish this time and fight the urge to overthink. Real human dialogue and interaction where you can feel and be felt will be invaluable as your vision, enabled by your instincts, becomes clearer. In honor of the great American poet Maya Angelou, always remember, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” I would argue this is even more important in the early days.

Great advice, to be sure, but another thing that really helps transition from a CEO job at Burberry for an executive job at Apple is 113,334 $AAPL shares, but I digress…
