On a Steve Jobsian life lesson

‎"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 others' 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."
Steve Jobs

The man had a way with words. I'll be sharing some of his most memorable ones in the days and weeks to come.

Your turn: Who inspires you?

Who inspires me are the ones who 'march to a different drummer', the one who won't let anything stand in their way no matter if they are told their idea won't work... The person who isn't arrogant at getting their invention to work and in doing so, still maintain the grace and integrity and humbleness.

Carmi: My paper has this huge article on Steve Jobs... Here is his quote on death which sums it up well:
"Death is very likely the best invention of life...All pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure, these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important" This was said at one of his (many) speeches.
