I like to think that my family was ahead of the curve when it came to technology. My dad was working on giant, gym-sized machines before we were born, which meant we always had some form of computer technology in the house. And as you can imagine, it has stuck with me. I’ve continued to use, dream about, and build computers to this day. One day though. Everything changed. I started to develop a crush…a sweet fruit crush that has infected me with excitement and possibilities. Now make no mistake, I was late to the Apple party, there is no questioning that, but now, no matter where I am, I’m almost certain to have some sort of Apple product on me. And for that reason, I say thank you. I’m glad we were able to help foster your dreams Steve.
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It is life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. Steve Jobs
