Thanks Steve Jobs for what you have meant to the world.
I was late to the party but joined nonetheless.
It started with a iPod nano in the spring of 2007 and moved to the original iPhone that fall. Ironically, I bought that iPhone with my first side gig that would spark an entrepreneurial bug that I have yet to cure.
I marveled from a distance at your brilliance and only converted wholly to Apple a year ago last month. Just as I embarked on my journey to do my life's work, I invested in your life's work and took you as a cue to go build what people don't even know they want.
In my case that is relational harmony. While that is much less measurable than what you built. I am glad you were in my life to inspire me.
I remember the last quote of yours I tweeted recently:
"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life."
Great advice and I'm so glad you lived yours.
