In my mind


In this morning I saw the biggest news in the world, the Apple co-founder Steve jobs died yesterday. - October 5, 2011. I feel very sorry for him and I am sure that all of the world will remember his life and works. I've been a fan and follower of the Apple way - I bought my first Apple product in 1994. Today I'd like to remember a powerful commencement speech Jobs gave at Stanford University a few years ago. This is one part we all should remember:

"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."

R.I.P. Steve
