He Was The Real Big Apple

Steve Jobs has passed away. I'll admit I've been a PC person, but I can't help admiring the accomplishments of Steve and his team through these decades. He literally changed the world with Apple products. In fact, while at Disney World's Epcot Center this summer, we noticed that Jobs is acknowledged on the ride “Spaceship Earth”. There is a scene where his likeness is displayed showing him creating a computer in his garage.


My brother was a big Apple champion, in his opinion it was the best operating system by far. And he would upgrade every so often when the newest Mac became available. I know plenty of people with I-phones, I-Pads and I-Pods, who hasn't downloaded from I-Tunes?


Interestingly, his business model was inspired by the Beatles, the band that had their own “Apple” brand. Jobs was a huge fan. But what has impressed me more than anything, is the inspiration found in Steve Jobs words that I hope many young people just starting out in life and career heed. This one is my favorite: “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 other’s 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.”


Thank you Steve Jobs, you did make a dent in the universe, just like you said you would.
