The the death of Steve Jobs was stunning to me.
I knew he was sickly, but I didn’t expect this.
Jobs died around the same age of my mother and I quite wonder how she feel about me right now?
Have I done enough with my gifts?
I have used my potential to the fullest?
Did I give up more times than I fought? Did pull away when I should have pushed harder?
Have I tried to live my life, like Steve Job live his?
By being innovative, where others said it couldn’t be done.
By being ambitious and trying again when you fall on your face.
By not going to sleep after the success of youth, by continuing to create as the grays hair and body starts to break down; inspiring not just the world and the people around you, but also yourself.
Like Steve Jobs we are all born with gifts.
Some are artists, others are teachers, nurses, builders, writers or people who are there for others in need.
Steve Jobs gifts was technology and though he is gone, his technology will live on.
But not just in products like the iPhone or the iPad, but the young minds of boys and girls in ranging from Stem schools, to brightest of urban cities to the smallest of rural areas.
Jobs influence will hopefully lead these young minds to push the bounds of technology so far that even Jobs would have been amazed.
So what are your gifts?
Have you done everything you could to make an impact on the world or your city or your block?
If not, it’s never too late.
So let’s you and I begun are journey today.
I think Steve Jobs would have appreciated the effort.
