Jobs, dots, and one amazing Apple.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward…you can only connect them looking backwards…So you have to trust the dots will connect somehow in your future….you have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, kharma, whatever… because believing that the dots will connect down the road, will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path…and that will make all the difference. ”
Steven Paul Jobs

1955 – 2011

The profile of a true innovator of our times, it is really sad news to hear that he has left us.  There is no telling what else would have been created if he had more time here, and what modern advances he would have led us to in order to simplify –as well as enhance- our lives through technology.  What he did leave us with are not only some really incredible products, but the seed of new standards of excellence and developments in a world where instant gratification is seemingly the end goal; there is so much more to our lives than just that – and he definitely blazed trails in brilliance -which takes time, patience, perseverance, and a bit of brow sweat.

These are the kind of people who we never really expect to lose, and it is always a shock to me – as if they are supposed to just go on living forever, like some kind of MacBook machine or something (well, I was shocked anyway); it’s somewhat surreal, and I am definitely saddened by it.

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life…  Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.  Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.  You are already naked.  There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

Thank you, Mr. Jobs, for some of the most amazing tools, toys, innovations, and ideas that you have passed on through your genius.  You will continue to be an inspiration to more people than we will ever know; you will not be forgotten.

Rest in peace
