The Loss Of A Great Visionary. Steve Jobs Dead At 56.
I just heard the news…and it sucks.
Jobs is dead. Cancer. Again…it sucks.
Apple has become one of my favorite brands in the world. I love everything about the products, the stores, the culture and the vision that goes into building something like that.
He drew a salary of just $1 a year as CEO of Apple. He took his pay in stock. Gotta love a leader who says…”I win only if we win.”
The world is definitely better because Steve Jobs lived. More importantly, we are better because Steve Jobs chose to live FULLY. There are any number of people who have similar talent, ability and opportunity as he did…I truly believe that. But Mr. Jobs chose to play a Big Game.
He rocked his life…
And his life touched millions.
And in one of my favorite speeches over the last decade or so…this is what he had to say to a graduating class of Standford.
His speech, aptly entitled, “How To Live Before You Die.”
