As an avid fan of Apple products for many years now, I was deeply saddened to hear the world lost a great visionary last night.  Steve Jobs revitalized technology and how we as consumers interact with it.  Apple, the company he founded continually refocuses how we interact with the world.  Pixar, the animation studio he helped launch, has created some of the most beloved movies in recent years, everything from Toy Story to Wall-E  to Cars.

While I love the products Apple creates and the movies Pixar releases, it is Jobs’ journey that deeply moves me.  A man who never graduated college, he followed his instincts.   Despite years of fighting pancreatic cancer, he continued to work and do what he loved, what he was passionate about.

Like many others around the world, I watched his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address and was inspired by his visionary ideas and the approach he had in living his life and leading his company.

15 minutes full of an inspirational story and amazing thoughts on how to live your life to the fullest.

 You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Thanks for making the world a cooler place.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

RIP, Steve Jobs.
