Berawal ketika membuka twitter kemarin, berita mengejutkan datang dari Apple, diberitakan bahwa Steve Jobs telah meninggal dunia.
Produk revolusioner dari Appe, seperti Ipod, Ipad, dan Iphone merupakan buah tangan Steve Jobs, tidak bisa dipungkiri bahwasanya tanpa Steve Jobs, mungkin Apple tidak akan sebesar sekarang. Steve Jobs adalah seorang visioner di bidangnya, ide-idenya memang lain dari pada yang lain, dan membuat Apple menjadi perusahaan yang mempunyai keunikan tersendiri di mata dunia dan mempengaruhi pergerakan trend IT dunia.

Salah satu pidatonya yang terkenal ketika berbicara di Standford University , sedikit memberikan gambaran pada kita mengenai mendiang Steve Jobs

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

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.
