I am sad to learn that Steve Jobs passed away.
I purchased a book about Steve and Apple the day he died. (Crazy coincidence, but it's true.) I wanted to read about Steve's leadership style and how his Apple company functioned. I was curious how he brought Apple from the brink of failure to become the most valuable company in America.
I read the first chapter yesterday morning. It was very interesting. I look forward to reading more today.
Jobs famously hired John Sculley away from Pepsi by asking him, "Do you want sell sugar water for the rest of your life or come with me and change the world?"
Steve did change the world... the computer I'm writing this on is a result of his leadership. The way we listen to music has changed because of Steve Jobs.
One man really can change the world.
Of course... computers will come and go. Music sources will probably change again in the future. The world will keep on changing.
I want to change the world too. Not for just a little while, but for eternity.
So the question I have to ask is...
what am I doing today that will change the world for eternity?
