Why Steve Jobs was big on INTUITION

Steve Jobs said: 
“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want. Everything else is secondary.” 
What you truly want
What you truly want is NOT available in schools, books, newspapers, broadcast media, Google or social media. You can, however, get inklings about what you truly want by observing your feelings and the quiet voice in your heart when you come into contact with outside messages. This is what Steve did.
Driving people crazy
Steve listened to his inner voice. He was known for coming up with brand new ideas that others had presented to him a week or two ago. This drove people crazy (it would me), but this was his way of focusing on his inner voice nearly exclusively.
Everything else is secondary
We live in a time where we are taught to fall in line, conform and listen to the narrative of the day without a lot of questioning of it. This is exactly opposite of what Steve did and he is by far the most celebrated innovator of our time.
Steve Jobs was big on intuition — because is works! 
We are in need of a Copernican change in the way we run our businesses and society. In the time of Copernicus the very thought of the earth not being the center of the universe was hard to fathom and violently opposed. Changing our thinking from being guided by outside influences, to receiving direction from inner sources, is the Copernican level of change we need as soon as possible.
Let me know if you have a better idea. Intuitive thinking worked for Steve Jobs. In less than 25 years he built the biggest company in the world from absolutely nothing. He showed how inner knowings are a better guide for business and life than anything else.
What do your inner knowings have to say about this?
