Thoughts and Flowers for Steve Jobs


Today I happened to walk by the Apple store here in Osaka, Japan and there were a bunch of flowers and notes laid on the sidewalk for Steve Jobs. He passed away on October 6th at the young age of 56. It made me think of how precious our time on this earth really is. Steve Jobs really did make the most of his time and in the process left a legacy of innovation that will be felt for generations to come. His achievements and words still resonant with us:

A lot of people ask me "What does Lifestyle Design mean?" Well, I would say Steve Jobs was the ultimate lifestyle designer:

"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 others' 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."
