How You Choose To Live Your Life Matters

I have refrained from commenting on the passing of Steve Jobs because so many people have already talked about how his vision changed technology, and thus our lives. But this weekend a video created by AzRmusic and distributed on YouTube captured the essence of why Steve became such an iconic figure. It wasn’t because of his genius.

Steve Jobs became an icon because he felt compelled to act on his core beliefs. In the face of overwhelming challenges Steve chose to follow his passion, lived life one day at a time, and tried to live up to his personal standards every day. And yes, he ultimately changed the world.

We all have much greater potential within us. Most of us don’t have the vision and determination to tap into that potential as deeply as we could. We’ll miss you Steve for oh so many reasons. Thanks for reminding us to “stay hungry” and “stay foolish.”

    Hulya, I find your comment more true today than ever before. Our economic condition has created fear, and people are willing to settle rather than try to pursue their passions. Yes, people have to pay the rent, but it’s sad to know that some sacrifice who they are along the way.
