    Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.......



    .....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.



    Select but very true words from Mr. Jobs.

    It has extra significance today - sniff

    I am glad he got to see one more of his dreams, this one from 1987, be born into reality.

    Wasn't Jonthan Ive's the so called designer and how things looked, whereas Steve priced things so that for a little more $$$ you get what you really want, so you go in wanting to spend $999 and spend $2000.





    But seriously REST IN PEACE, and he will, it is a very sad day, and now, its going to suck not seeing him on stage, wow, that was fast. Man oh Man, fast.

    Condolences to the family and to Apple.

    Keep the faith. Long live Steve Jobs!

    I stand corrected - Steve would want you to do your best! We're all very sad but inspired as well by a life well lived. \

    OSX Lion, how appropriate that the Lion was saved for now. Steve Jobs, the truly regal Lion of Apple. Long may his spirit live. Thank you for everything.

    Steve was instrumental in shaping the future we all live in today. Sadly, this is his last stop on that journey. We will continue on without him.



    I think this rememberance written by Walt Mossberg is a fitting eulogy:

    Glad I still have the video for his last public appearance at the Apple WWDC 2011 Keynote Address for iOS5 and iCloud. I will save it forever.



    He was one of my few inspirations. Respect always.
