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 - American computer entrepreneur, inventor, and technology innovator.  Co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple.  Aimed to develop products that were both functional and elegant.  Renovated the music industry with the invention of the iPod and iTunes program.  Considered himself a Buddhist.  Battled pancreas cancer and lost.
