Good Bye Steve Jobs

This could be a long winded post about this amazing man who will be seen in the history books as the Thomas Edison of our generation, but a conversation with Mark Cahill, a friend from my Atex days who pondered whether Steve Jobs wished he had spent less time working, made me change the direction of my post and I found some quotes from his commencement speech given at Stanford in 2005; one year after his diagnosis.

Of his success and of love, to which I feel he felt were indelibly entwined, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do … If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

Thanks Steve, you were an amazing man!

  1. Sad to hear about Steve Jobs. I enjoyed the post. It has the best rundown I have seen for a while. Thumbs up :-)

    Steve Jobs made Apple a success because he did not spend less time working. I suppose if more people spent more time working and believing they could achieve anything such as Steve Jobs did, they would not be complaining they are the 99%.

  3. So, goodbye to Steve Jobs. You were the Apple of many an eye. His death didn’t come as a surprise but the reality has still come as a shock to many, judging from the heartfelt tributes evident on many a blog and site. What stays with me most about him is he said, as others have, you have to love what you do. That’s his legacy for me.

  4. Steve Jobs was such an innovator. Not only did he bring us some of the best products, he also taught us all how to chase our dreams and be creative. Through his love and devotion of technological advances, he has brought his company into the spotlight. Thanks Steve… you will be missed.
