in memory

I don't often reference current events on here, but I'm really quite sad that Steve Jobs died yesterday. He was so young (56!) and impacted so many, causing the world to rethink how we use computers and really? How we live. So here are two things: one, him doing the voiceover from the "crazy ones" ad (one of my life mantras, I think). And two, his commencement address to Stanford in 2006: how to live before you die. He would know.





"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."

Think different, people.
