Today morning I got a call from my friend saying ‘Steve Jobs died’. I immediately got up from my bed and switched on my PC to check the news and this is what I saw in Apple.com.
It’s really sad news for me and for those who were inspired and touched by his Innovation and Creativity.
My hearty condolences to his family,friends and the employees of Apple.
I would like to post the speech he gave in 2005 at Stanford University.
“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.”
Miss You Steve Jobs.
