Steve Jobs Tribute: Here’s to the Crazy Ones & Stay Foolish

Do you feel like a round peg in a square hole? An inspirational video.

And I have to paste this somewhere so I don’t forget:

“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. … Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
— Stanford University commencement address, June 2005.

    Thank you for the beautiful post on Mr. Apple. We can’t imagine living without his invention now that we all depend on so much not only for business but our small happiness. Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs. I do keep his message in my mind.

      I never knew that someone I didn’t know personally could have that big an impact on my life and to feel his loss so tremendously.
