“Design is not just how it looks. It’s how it works” he said. One of the many things he thaught me. Whilst sadly expecting the end for him was soon, I now can hardly take it.
It’s amazing how a man you don’t actually know can teach and impress so much on you. This is how a single man can change the world. He is no Marx, he is not Einstein, or Washington, he is not Ataturk.
He is one different man lived every moment of his life to deliver different and beautiful things to the world. Even for the money, Steve Jobs did it right.
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.”
It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?”
And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
And he indeed changed things, changed the world.
Thank you sir, thank you for everything. Rest in peace…
