Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
â€œRemembering that Iâ€™ll be dead soon is the most important tool Iâ€™ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.Â Â Because almost Â everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fallÂ away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way Â 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.â€
I came to the world of Apple roughly 5 years ago, buying my first and only MacBook (the one upon which I am composing this post). Â With the deepest sincerity, I am yet to behold a more beautiful and complete piece of machinery. Â Mr. Jobs is truly among the greatest beings who have walked this earth and anyone who has had the chance to use his inventions can truly undersand the soul of this great man.
