The passing of Steve Jobs last week unleashed a tsunami of testimonials (my own ode to this business rock star can be found here).
While expected, his death was profoundly sad—both because of his age and the potential he had to continue to change the world. Steve was a gift. He did work that mattered.
Perhaps now is a good time to take stock. To stop the frenetic pace for a moment and consider how your work helps others. To consider whether what you’re doing truly matters.
Are those you touch better off by knowing you?
Because in the end, that’s all that matters.
