We’ve never met the man.
And yet, we feel his loss deeply, and keenly.
Because we know how much he has changed our lives and our world.
They call him visionary, the Einstein of our generation.
But I think he is much more.
He is the “crazy one”, a round peg in a square hole, a genius who has reinvented so many of the things that we never knew could be made better, faster, sleeker, more beautiful.
He is the classic and everlasting example of courage, of creativity, of perfection, of passion.
A person like him just isn’t comparable to anyone else.
Unfortunately for us, he’s like the shooting star that blazes brightly and furiously across the dark night sky for that mere millisecond before his life is snuffed out all too quickly.
He was a creative, a virtuoso, a mastermind.
But more importantly, he was also a husband and a father.
If he has left a gaping hole in our world, god only knows how devastated his death must have left his family.
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.
We will miss his genius.

Steve Jobs had a bigger impact on my life than I do. Never thought I would feel the impact of the loss as I do….very sad.
Loved your post – beautifully written as always 🙂
