“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.“
I am sure everybody know who Steve Jobs was.
I know nothing about Steve Jobs, except that he’s responsible for creating the iPhone I am using.
I love the quote above. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Life is just too fucking short to let your emotions take control; to let your job take over your life; to always not be up for the challenge; to not choosing to be happy.
To grow old and look back into nothing.
