The Lens of the Media

As I sit here with my Apple iPad and iPhone on my iPod dock, my mind returns to Steve Jobs and the link to the speech that I posted earlier. 

What he achieved in his life was amazing, a one in a million kind of life that the rest of us read about in magazines, watch films about or read books about.

I’ve read articles that perhaps he wasn’t liked, he had a difficult personality and similar. 

But Steve Jobs was a visionary and yet retained something so very human and grounded that you couldn’t help but be moved by what he said about life.

How well do we ever really know someone, especially when it is via the lens of the media?

How To Live Before You Die

A truly inspirational and thoughtful speech from the late Steve Jobs.

It’s not often that I am affected by such things but this really gave me something to think about – a philosophy to employ in my own life perhaps.

‘Stay hungry, stay foolish.’

‘We all want to go to heaven but nobody wants to die to get there.’
