(Editor’s note – I’m giving thought to making this another section, but let’s see how you guys like it, first.)
As we all know, tech is about what gets done. Startups, new programs, new apps, new OS’s, you know the drill. It’s usually the physical, not always the verbal. But, every once in awhile, something gets said that shakes it up. I have to give credit to Joe for sending me this article, which was rather interesting within itself:
Definitely worth a read, as it gives a little insight as to what to expect from the upcoming Steve Jobs biography. But the bit that got me the most was the quote from Jobs at the end, which reads as follows (referring to him predicting his early death, oddly enough) -
“We all have a short period of time on this earth,” he told the Sculleys. “We probably only have the opportunity to do a few things really great and do them well. None of us has any idea how long we’re going to be here nor do I, but my feeling is I’ve got to accomplish a lot of these things while I’m young.”
Love or hate the guy, this quote gave me chills. And it makes an even bigger point – we don’t know what’s going to happen in 10 years, let alone tomorrow. Make everyday your best, capitalize on every opportunity you can, because you’ll never know if it’ll be that oh-so-important one.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
