I don’t know why, but I was shocked when I heard about Steve Jobs’ death last night. I think my iPad alerted me five or six minutes after Apple released the announcement.
“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.“
I didn’t agree with Steve politically or religiously, so what am I doing quoting him on the meaning of life?
