...I will be the first to acknowledge that I don’t own an Apple product and I am very much in the minority as I think everyone who I know does. But, as the world today mourns a phenomenal visionary, we should delight in that Steve Jobs was of our time and demonstrated his ethos via his actions and has changed people’s lives and indeed the world forever.
He embodied what life, in my eyes, should be about: Thinking freely, not being afraid to make a stand, to live for what you believe and not for what society tells you to believe or how you should live your life; To go with your gut even if a million people don’t see it your way - if you can justify your thinking and stance, be brave enough to see it through.
Steve Jobs embodied the philosophy of seeing the bigger picture when making decisions and - in his case - the very true global picture and to make decisions based on that rather than what is just visible with the naked eyes.
And, in the tough times, when life hits you with an avalanche always try and maintain faith and belief that this is part of your destiny and that at some point, “the dots will somehow connect in the future.”
“You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers… 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, Stanford University 2005... And I will add one thing to that – if you’ve found your True Love, go for it and be Truly iHAPPY.
