Translation from: Steve Jobs ha fallecido (2011-10-05)
This afternoon the Apple official site published a release statement announcing the death of Steve Jobs at 56 years old. The Apple site shows a solidary picture (also shown in this post), which only says: Steve Jobs 1955-2011.
I’m not an Apple fan (I like some of its products and I don’t like some others), but even when I don’t share a blind admiration for the brand or the company, I largely share, the admiration for the man who made of Apple the company that it’s today. Without any doubt, the Steve Jobs death is a sensitive lost for the technology industry, and in some way, is also a lost for the people who grew up feeling admiration and respect for Jobs tenacity, vision, and achievements.
Surely a lot of people, podcasts, news shows and other media will dedicate a lot of time to talk about the Steve Jobs career, they’ll sorry for his death and show their respects, and this is totally ok, however, I think that more than feeling bad about his death we should celebrate his contributions to our daily life, learn from his successes and mistakes, in this way we can inspire our selves to carry out our own ideas and never leave them out, just like Steve did.
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.
