“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to love what you do.

“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 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. Don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”  – Steve Jobs, February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011

  • HBR printed his Stanford address a few years ago, it has stayed on my wall since,and yup I reread it often. Loved this one too: ““Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works”

    Most of us can now work anywhere thanks to him and Tim Berner’s Lee, who worked on the www on a NeXt.(Echoes of Bletchley Park & Enigma?)
    The development of NeXt should be given more respect as a major step in what Jobs did thereafter, a bit like Laker pre Branson.

    Now what has he left for us to discover? The mind needs to boggle!
