More importantly though, the world owes Steve jobs for his philosophy on living life to the full.
He has definitely influenced the way I think about how I want to live my life, and what I want to see when I look back on it. Sitting in my apartment in India, looking out my window on a city brimming with life, I thought about the twenty most important verbs I want to do justice to in mine:
new friendships, new experiences, new journeys, new adventures.
with people everywhere. No matter who they are, where they come from or what they run from.
things that will leave a positive imprint on the world and others.
with hope, belief and limitless ambition.
as much of the world and all of it's endless wonders that is possible in a lifetime.
myself with courage, conviction and clarity.
at myself and with others.
something new every day that I can bring into the next.
to what people really mean when they talk, and care about what they are actually trying to say.
as if each day is going to be my last.
without fear and without regret.
with the enthusiasm and eagerness of a seven year old child. For the sheer fun of it.
the world as it really is and the moments that make life so special.
both happiness and sorrow with others.
every single day. As many times as it is possible to do so. And it's always possible to do so.
myself and others both financially and emotionally, never letting my desire for one outweigh the importance of the other.
everything that I know to be true.
with determination and dedication, to achieve great things.
if I feel I have something worth saying.
Thanks for the inspiration Steve.
