Yom Kippur Message from Steve Jobs

There is so precious time, and so much to accomplish, including many issues to be blogged for the record. 

Tomorrow the sun will set on the aseret yemai teshuva and the destiny of our coming year will be sealed in by the celestial power of our creator.

Today we heard of Steve Job’s passing.  I was sent this quotation in the name of Steve Jobs and thought it appropriate to our Yom Kippur petition:

“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,” Jobs said during a Stanford commencement ceremony.

“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 used his time in our world to make a difference for good.  Hopefully you and I will do the same, even if our legacy is not as dramatic or widely known.
