Steve Jobs was truly an amazing visionary - he will go down in history as one of the greats of all time - along with Sam Walton, Henry Ford, Martin Luther King, Shakespeare, Davinci to name a few. But it wasn't just his vision that made him great - it was his courage of conviction and searing focus combined with his vision that manifested it into reality - I am sure he endured many "scars" along his journey but those always come with greatness.
Perhaps his greatest inspirational speach was the one he gave at Stanford University commencement where he mentioned that our 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
As helen keller once said "one of lifes greatest illusions is that we have security" - nothing in life is guaranteed and we surely cannot take our material wealth with us - life is really just an open playgraound with only the moment to celebrate... what drove Steve was passion to make a difference and move us all forward and shift the planet... and as Steve would have wanted it to put a ding in the universe.... I somehow know when I loook up to the stars tonight somewhere in the deep corner I will be able to see that ding and steve smiling down on us.
