Steve Jobs 1955-2011

“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.”

“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.”

“Stay hungry, stay foolish.”

 “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.”

“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.”

 “We’re here to put a dent in the universe.”

  1. @truartagenda: Denise, Thank you for sharing. In retrospect, I didn’t start out Mac. I was PC, but when I started, it was contagious. I went from the MacBook (1992) to MacBook Pro to iMac, and indulged in anything ” i ” . Have you seen website?

  2. Insanely great. It is silly yet I marked the years by his presentations which I watched online. I have three Mac laptops, an iPod and an iPhone. (Apple stock almost made me rich although I lost heart at the wrong moment.) Yes leadership is something of importance, especially when the focus is on innovation and not power over others. ‘nuf said.
