Remembering Steve Jobs

I know that this will be just one of many tributes. There are so many things that could be said about Steve and his innumerable contributions to the world in which we live. I’ll leave it to the many other fitting tributes to express everything Steve has done for the world.

I just want to share two things that have inspired me most about Steve.

Two things that, it is not an exaggeration to say, have helped me through some difficult times. Two things that gave me focus where I had none — that played a vital role in helping me bring myself to where I am now. These aren’t direct quotes, but messages that I have derived from things he said, and things he did.

1. Being different isn’t just OK, it can be your greatest asset.

2. Listen to yourself. That inner voice knows you better than you do. Trust it.

Thank you for everything. You will be remembered.

    Although it can be trite to say that someone changed one’s life, it’s very often true.

    Still, there are some whose impact on my life was truly significant. Steve was one of those.

    We met three times; twice when I was a Mac developer, and once as a civilian. We were both adoptees, though he didn’t seem to want to talk about that as much as his Mac.

    His vision, enthusiasm, and focus were inspirational.

    The world is richer for his presence.

    I’m truly sorry he’s no longer at the terrestrial Infinite Loop.
