Eclectic Echoes--Steve Jobs Edition

I never thought I'd be a Mac person. But here I sit typing on my MacBook Pro and answering calls on my iPhone and suffering from a huge case of iPad envy! And I can't help but reflect on how one man's dream can impact so many people. Granted Steve Jobs was not the heroic man that Fred Stuttlesworth or Derrick Bell (both of whom died the same day as Jobs). Yet whether you use an Apple product or not, your life has been changed by his life. And I have been very moved by his thoughts on life and faith (see video at bottom). So thank you Steve Jobs for pursuing your dream and changing our lives and hopefully we will use the fruits of your ingenuity to make a positive difference in the world!

“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 other’s 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.” Steve Jobs
