Very frankly, I don’t know what am I proving by writing this post, neither do I know what am I going to write down below…All I know is that the news that Steve Jobs is no more has hurt me somewhere deep inside, I wanted to write something about him, related to him, my thoughts.
WordPress asks me to select the category in which this post belongs to, I ended up selecting Technology AND Personal. How often would this happen, the two together? Probably won’t happen again for me. He’s built products that’s touched the lives of many, he’s led the world of innovation, world of technology, set an example as an entrepreneur to the world, and more than anything lived a life full of struggle carving is way up the ladder in an artistic way. My final goal of life is to make this world a better place to live, and since I am good at technology, mine changes to making optimum use of technology to make life easier. This guy, Steve Jobs, is my Idol… Reason being he also has the same goal and has achieved a lot with dignity, pride and a hell lot of courage. He’s been through the toughest of hurdles in his life and yet dealt with it in such a wonderful manner. He’s set an example for all of us to deal with obstacles, which are a part and parcel of life for each one of us.
You name the problem and he has given a generalized solution of each one of it. His ideologies of life is what will remain forever in the heart and soul of each one of us. If you follow technology closely, you will know what he meant for the world of technology. Without the innovations that he’s done we wouldn’t have the technology we are using today as refined as it is. The latest example being, if it were not for Iphone we would never be even close to an Android. This is the power that man had. What we have lost is not just an innovator, not just a successful man, but a true human being. What Apple has lost is also not just a CEO, but a true leader. Enough said, I could go on and on on writing about his greatness.
Here’s what a few other well known people had to say on his sad demise :
Bill Gates : For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.
US President Barack Obama : Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world. The world has lost a visionary.
Mark Zuckerberg : Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.
Eric Schmidt : Steve was so charismatically brilliant that he inspired people to do the impossible, and he will be remembered as the greatest computer innovator in history.
Dick Costolo : Once in a rare while, somebody comes along who doesnt just raise the bar, they create an entirely new standard of measurement.
Also, those of you who have never heard the speech Steve Jobs gave at the graduation Ceremony at Stanfoord University, here it is. The most inspiring speech ever, speaks his heart out, talks about his struggles throughout the life and how he tacked them. Learn from it. This is where the inspiration comes from.
