Thank you, Steve Jobs!

I am one of the millions of people that write about you now you’ve passed away. I have been a big fan of you, Apple and your products for a long time. I have posted your speech at Stanford University back in 2008 on my blog and you can find the video on Youtube too.

I just wanna thank you for being such an inspiring man with your speech and your creations too. I am a Mac user and I can’t thank you enough for making it possible to do so many things with Apple products. Your products are so enjoyable and beautiful. It really enables me to be as close as I possibly can be with all the professionals in the world, from making a short movie for my in-laws to creating a photo album for my parents in Indonesia. My iPhone really helps me to get through the hectic and disastrous days at the office and also makes it possible to share the joy and laughter with my friends and family.

In times like this when i feel i am not what i want to be in my career, one part of your speech really inspires me:

 You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers.Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it.

Don’t settle.”

I will keep on looking and working to find the true love in my work. I won’t settle.

Now you’re not here anymore, I believe you’ll be remembered and in every corner of the world have your legacy in many different shapes of your inventions and products. One thing for sure is that  you’ll always be inspiring a lot of people with your products, vision, management, charisma.. so many things. So many messages, candles and mourners on the day you passed away is a proof that you make a better world.


T.H.A.N.K.  Y.O.U

Again, cancer has taken a life of someone that i care for. I hope one day we can find the cure.
