Thank You Steve Jobs for Making the World a Better Place

Steve Jobs, 1955-2011
“It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy."
I'm a huge Apple fan and have worked on a Mac since 1988. When my friend Sally and I owned our marketing communications firm through the 90's, we had lots of Macs; PowerMacs, Mac IIs, iMacs. And we named every one of them; Mustang is the only name I can recall right now, but we loved those computers like they were family.

I've always admired and been thankful for Steve Jobs. I often wondered if he was a boater, always looking at the names of the biggest boats in all the marinas from southern California to Nantucket, hoping to see if  "that one" could be the Apple founder's boat.

Despite his greatness, Steve Jobs taught us that he’s just a man. He got up every day, just like the rest of us. He kissed his family goodbye and he threw his heart and soul into his work – his passion — just like we can.

We all can be great. If we try, we’ll honor him.

From Jobs’ 2005 Stanford commencement speech:
"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."
