New York (The Big Apple), October 5, 2011. RIP Steve Jobs, the crazy diamond who shone upon us with his genius, determination and tech wizardry. He should also be part of this iconic 1997 ad of Apple – The Crazy Ones. A sad loss of one of the world’s greatest innovators, as influential as Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein and more versatile. So young….only 56. So sad…..Adieu, Mr. Apple.
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work & the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.” – Steve Jobs.
“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.” - from the 2005 commencement at Stanford University.
- Steve Jobs (1955 -2011).
