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. – Steve Jobs
PS. This is what I’ve long felt intuitively but struggle with how to articulate that I know. Without a special pedigree, wealth, fame, or talent, I’ve struggled to gain the confidence that I’m not a loon. Thank you Steve, for the assist.
