Sometimes we find bits of wisdom along the way . . .

"At 17 I read somewhere,
  If you live each day as it is your last,
someday you'll most certainly be right." 

"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. 

Your time is limited . . .
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 . . .
everything else is secondary."

I printed this out two weeks ago after his death. So simple yet filled with such wisdom!
Have a wonderful Fall day!

HI Lynne, In memory of Mr. Jobs, I posted the youtube video of this very address. He was not only very smart, but wise...facing death he learned to live! A perfect reminder for us all. Love, Penny

*sigh* He will be missed, not only at Apple, but in the entire technology world and by those of us who love Apple products.

Great post Lynne,
it is a pity that we don't all live our lives thinking like that.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Such good advice. The world is a poorer place without him.
