Remembering Steve Jobs

This is an odd thing to place in my blog, but my heart was sadden yesterday as we heard the news of Steve Jobs dying from cancer.
It just makes you think, deep inside you.
1) He had the money
2) He had the innovation and intelligence
yet, as some few close friends now, he died from pancreatic cancer too.

As I always say, life is precious and you need to make sure you live everyday as is your last one.

Even I did not buy any of his products, I always admired him. He was such the innovator, the one with the groundbreaking ideas. I also admired him because he seemed to be a nice guy too. He was, to me, a grounded guy.

As someone that worked the corporate world for my life and now I am trying to do something different, I thought this was just perfect. I read this today, and wanted to share it:

“I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been fired from
Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it.
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m
convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.
You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for
your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only
way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And 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. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the
years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
– Steve Jobs

Have a great day!
