I was going to write a long, rambling piece mourning the loss of Steve Jobs which I, like many people who have held him as one of their hero’s feel today but there are no words I can come up with, nor have I read today (with the possible exception of this from John Gruber) which can sum up the death and the life of Steve Jobs as well has he has done himself:
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.
