Less than two months after resigning his position as CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs has died in California. He was fifty-six. Jobs suffered from health problems for years; in 2004, he survived a rare form of pancreatic cancer, and was forced to undergo a liver transplant in 2009.

A computer prodigy, Jobs famously dropped out of Reed College, and then, at age twenty-one, founded Apple with friend Steve Wozniak. He was on the cover of Time magazine by age twenty-six. Jobs' biography is well known, so I won't rehash it here. Instead, I'll leave you with a quote from this visionary inventor: 

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
