Imagine: A Eulogy to Steve Jobs

Imagine: A Eulogy to Steve Jobs

Today, Steve Jobs passed away from a rare form of pancreatic cancer.

He was a visionary . . . someone who didn't wait for others to do, but instead found sure and direct ways to do. Immediately. Indeed, he often introduced new ideas and methodology long before competitors.

You see, Steve Jobs believed. He believed in things that seem intangible to most, and he believed in his own imagination.

In his honor, won't you imagine . . .

  • the breadth of mankind's abililities if more people saw the world as Steve Jobs saw the world.
  • what we could accomplish if most people just decided to build something --- better yet, something magnificent --- in a readily available garage.
  • our world if most of us saw presently impossible as not only possible, but impending.
  • the things we could collectively accomplish . . .

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

     I recently watched the movie Snow White while babysitting for a friend’s daughter so she could get out.  The last time I had seen the movie was many years ago when I watched it with my kids.  As I have witnessed many times in the past couple of decades, the message of Positive Self Talk was loud and clear. 

     When the evil queen asked, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest one of all?” The mirror’s reply, “Snow White” made the evil Queen furious. You see, it wasn’t enough for the Queen that she was beautiful.  Instead, the Queen chose to see that she wasn’t enough. There was someone more beautiful than she.
