The essence of a creative person: think, reflect, act. The XXth Century Leonardo da Vinci, Tomas Alva Edison. A man who, in spite of his affliction, managed to change our outlook on the world within less than a decade.
A Captain who stayed at the wheel, even though his health was sinking. He silently left a ship which is very much afloat.
What is most illustrative about his premature death, however, is that he resigned as a CEO only six weeks ago. Resilient to the very end.
Let's take heart and inspiration from his 2005 Stanford Commencement address:
<<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>>.
Farewell Steve, you've done good.
