Steve Jobs so inspired me, helping shape my perspective about life on many levels — beauty & technology and faith & courage.
For years, I’ve carried one of his quotes: ”Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
I downloaded Walter Issacson’s tome, Steve Jobs, last fall and picked it up again this morning. It is a compelling look at the man, his genius and his legacy.
Of Jobs Issacson says, “Steve was filled with contradictions. He was a counterculture rebel who became a billionaire. He eschewed material objects yet made objects of desire. He talked, at times, about how he wrestled with these contradictions. His counterculture background combined with his love of electronics and business was key to the products he created. They combined artistry and technology.
“He was a genius at connecting art to technology, of making leaps based on intuition and imagination.”
I encourage you to broaden your perspective of technology, and beauty, with Issacson’s biography. Available for your reading or listening pleasure on all manner of mobile devises and tablets. And, in hardcopy from amazon.com or at a bookseller near you.
