I read this on some news channel while browsing for some interesting content to watch. At the time I read this headline, I had no idea that Steve Jobs has left us.
Later on that day, I read on some other news channel that Steve Jobs had died. Truly speaking, I couldn’t believe my ears, Jobs and Zuckerberg are the only two tech entrepreneurs whom I admire.
Although, I have never used a Mac because it is “a very expensive” computer but there is no denying the fact that technology which Jobs and his mates created were meant to make computing a faster, hassle free and fun experience for the normal people (at a premium price).
I watched some interview where Ankit Vengurlekar was speaking about “the way” Steven Jobs had built Apple Computers and had taken that “fruit company” to heights looked upon by all the innovators and entrepreneurs of past century, this one and rest to come.
My Computer was dead on the day Steve Jobs died so I couldn’t blog about it.
With whoever I met after that, the first question I asked them was, “Do you know! Steve Jobs died.” Since most of my friends and family are not tech addicts, they weren’t much bothered about this thing at all.
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.” – Steve Jobs
The above line is something that glories effort and not the end result. This invariably states that Steve Jobs was more into creating “wonderful, life changing” technology rather than filling money in the bank because Death is something that is meant to happen at last, no one has escaped it “permanently” yet and no one will.
“Life is too short, there is no reason why you should not follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs
This quote is from Steve Jobs speech at Standford University in 2005, he had cancer for past 10 years but I didn’t know about it and neither did the rest of the world (I am not sure though). You, me and every other guy who has walked this earth remembers his childhood days when dreams flew from our lips without resistance from “the society, family and the world,” there was no such thing called fear. We all have been designed to dream, which means that we all had “an entrepreneur, a visionary” inside us, and we still do.
What I have learned for Jobs is something that has sparked the entrepreneurial spirit in and it is not going to fizz out.
Now, I am going to use the sentence without which none of my articles about visionaries got completed in the 8th grade. It doesn’t really matter that Steve Jobs is not among us anymore, he will always remain hail & hearty in our memories.
