Steve Jobs

In memory of one of my heroes:

Steve Jobs

1955-2011

From a tweet in outerspace:

“Steve Jobs.

On behalf of every dreamer sitting in his or her garage

who is crazy enough to try to change the world,

you will be missed.”

And in his own words:

  • “Sometimes life’s going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love, and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers”
  • “Stay hungry, Stay foolish”
  • “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, heart and intuition”
  • “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it, and like any great relationship it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don’t settle”

Thank you, Steve. R.I.P.
