Mourning Links

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
– Steve Jobs

I don’t have anything overly profound to say about the passing of Steve Jobs other than the fact that every single day I carry four items back and forth to work – a Macbook Pro laptop, an iPod Nano, an iPad 2 and my iPhone.  Steve’s products have changed the world and have become some of the most important tools in my daily life.

And so I’m grateful and sad all at once today.
