Following his death, I have friends and colleagues who said things like:
“What is the point of earning so much yet you cannot live to enjoy”
“He retired too late, and didn’t get to enjoy”
“Why work so hard when you cannot bring the wealth to your grave”
They probably never knew this. Steve Jobs was enjoying his work, enjoying his mission, and enjoying the products he creates. Retirement probably never crossed his mind. He didn’t do it for money either. Just look at how he, an Apple CEO, fix a yellow gradient.
I will remember you for how you changed my life.
