Think different....

“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. 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.”

— Steve Jobs, 2005


  1. He was such an incredible man, and what a great quote!



  2. Wow what a hard hitting thought. I think Steve Jobs death hit me hard. Not because of the man he was but when my husband and I were going to get married, and he quit college, he walked into a place called Computer Warehouse and said, " Hey I am a programmer do you need one?" They hired him that day and No one had yet heard of personal computers or Steve Jobs. He started programming them and writing the software when there was none.
    So his death hit home in that I am getting older too and I can't live forever either.
    Except I have eternal life and Jesus which makes life I think a bit better. Don't you?

  3. G'day. That's a great quote and very true. He had an amazing mind.Another one who's passing leaves the world a poorer place. Take care. Liz...
