Steve Jobs – Final Essay

Steve Jobs Died a billionaire at age 56.  This is his final essay:


“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. However, aside from work, I have little joy. 


In the end, my wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to. At this moment, lying on my bed and recalling my life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of my death.


You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you, but you cannot have someone bear your sickness for you. Material things lost can be found or replaced. But there is one thing that can never be found when it’s lost – Life. 


Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we realize that a $300 or a $30 watch, both tell the same time. You will realize that your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down – you go down with it. 


Therefore, I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, that is true happiness! 


Don’t educate your children to be rich.  Educate them to be happy.  So when they grow up they will know the value of things and not the price.  Eat your food as your medicine, otherwise you have to eat medicine as your food.


The One who loves you will never leave you for another, because even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find a reason to hold on.


There is a big difference between a human being and being human.  Only a few really understand it.  You are loved, when you are born. You will be loved, when you die. In between, you have to manage!


The six best doctors in the world are: sunlight … rest … exercise … diet … self-confidence and … friends.
