Steve Jobs has passed away, but his legacy remains.
His “iEverything” – iPod, iMac, iPad, iPhone… – has changed the way we work and live forever. But not only his works, Job’s speeches have also changed people, motivating them to do their best and make a difference – before it’s all too late.
Of all he said in his speeches, one of the powerful ones is this: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” He asked the question every morning he looked at himself in the mirror. Too many “No” as an answer means you need to make a change.
The speech is made after Jobs was diagnosed with cancer and was told that he has only 3 to 6 months to live.
Here’s the all-important question for you, rephrased from Jobs’ question to himself:
If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do today?
