To one of the most influential people of our time, and possibly all time. Even if you don’t like the way Apple do business, there is no denying the genius that was Steve Jobs.
My favorite quote of his was:
“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.”
[Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]
