Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

L-R: Ed Catmull, Steve Jobs, Bob Iger and John LasseterSteve Jobs. Pioneer, innovator, dreamer, inventor, businessman, husband, father.

I’m finding this piece difficult to write. There is a mix of emotions swirling around my mind. Seeing what to write, and writing it simply and clearly is difficult. Steve Jobs saw clearly, and simply. We all know who he was, and what he achieved.

So I’ll keep this short, clear and simple.
Steve, you dared to think different and you changed the world. You are sorely missed and we will never forget you. To your wife Laurene, your children, and everyone you have ever met and those you have not, our deepest sympathies.
I’ll leave you with some words of Steve from his 2005 Stanford Address

"Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."

    Thank you for your contributions towards Pixar and the world, Steve. It won’t be the same without you and no-one will ever take your place.

    Rachel.
