Steve Jobs, 1955-2011

Steve Jobs was only 56; William Shakespeare was 52; Michael Jackson was 51; Jose Rizal was 35; and JC was only in his 30s.

At this day and age when man wants to live forever, and look young every day of his life, there are individuals like Steve, Shakespeare, Michael, Jose, and JC who show us beyond their years on earth that it is not the number of years we live that matters, it is what we do with those years that counts.

We complain about the difficulties in life, but we never lift a finger to change them. We rely our happiness on other people's competence, our success on other people's sweat.

Perhaps it is too late to ask the great dead folks how they did it. But it is neither too late nor too hard to be inspired by what they have left us.

As Steve Jobs said, "Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." We are all part of a great design. And it is not about looking good and feeling fine. It is about being a gift to the world like the sun in the sky, like the Apple in your hands.

Steve Jobs, thank you!
