How Steve Jobs lived before he died

I knew Steve Jobs was sick but I didn’t expect him to go so quickly after leaving Apple. Everyone knows he was Apple. I don’t know if he has an apprentice who shared his passion, to help the firm continue to produce disruptive technologies. I certainly hope so. I feel much closer to my iPhone today. I bought a fanciful cover for it (more about that later) and I keep looking at it, relishing what I have of Steve.

I was still down and out when I read this article about him on wired.com. I felt a sense of relief when I read about his life and his words. I will take this away with me:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life,”
Jobs said. “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.”

He certainly knew how to live before he died. If I learn anything today, let it be this.

  4. We read or hear words like those and we think, of course, they’re so obviously true. Then, two days later, we’re back into our routines and the same old mindset. I don’t know why we keep needing reminders about something so important, but most of us seem to. Thank you for this one, Kemi.
