Steve Jobs dies


We often think of celebrities in terms of tv and movie stars, but today's post focuses on a man who reached celebrity status in his own right: The visionary Steve Jobs.

The world is mourning the loss of such an incredible man as we all ask ourselves "How can I make a positive difference on the world?" Steve Jobs truly transformed the way we live today. I saw an image on a friend's Facebook status that I thought was touching; it was a picture of an ipad with the words "I sad" on it. We'll never know what new inventions Steve Jobs would have introduced to the world had he been able to live longer.

As word spread among Steve Jobsís friends and family that he was dying, many made the pilgrimage to Palo Alto for one last visit. Most were intercepted by Jobsís wife, Laurene, who apologized that he was too ill to receive visitors.

In his final weeks, Steve Jobs was too weak to walk up the stairs on his own, she said. Among those whom Jobs decided to meet were his friend the physician Dean Ornish, venture capitalist John Doerr, and Disney chief Robert Iger. He also gave Appleís executives advice on unveiling the new iPhone and spoke to his biographer, Walter Isaacson. Mostly, though, he spent his final weeks with his wife and children.

I hope Steve Jobs realized how beloved he was to the entire world and felt a sense of satisfaction for the contributions he made. May we all feel that when we leave this earth.

So what are YOU doing to make the world a better place? You don't have to be an inventor or technical genius to leave your mark on the planet. How many lives will you touch for good? Even one is enough. In a tough economy when everyone is just trying to survive and pay the bills, let us give pause to what we can give to others. I'm not talking about tangible items only; what part of yourself can you share with others to bless their lives? Their day? Today?

More than the amazing technology that Steve Jobs gave us, he brought people together with his inventions...cell phones to talk to friends, computers to reach out to loved ones, tools to share photos and memories. He made it easier for us to connect. That was the genius of his gift. After all, aren't our relationships the thing of most importance in life?

Now go get your iphone and tell someone how much you love them.
