When was the last time you truly examined your life—how you spent your day, who you let influence it, what decisions you made? Very seldom do we slow down and enjoy what makes us human: our triumphs, discouragements, and everything in between.

An incredible example of enjoying each day as a gift and savoring even its last moments is the creative mastermind behind Apple, Inc., Steve Jobs. Despite his inevitable and untimely death on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at the age of 56, his legacy lives on as more than just what he did for one of the biggest companies the world has ever seen.

After a long, relentless battle with an aggressive pancreatic cancer, Jobs was informed in February that his time left on this earth was drawing to a close. He confided in only a few close individuals and began preparing for the end. 

The world was shocked to see him resign as CEO of Apple in August, when he quickly withdrew from the public eye to spend time with the people he loved most. With only a few visitors to his home and time sparingly allocated to the new iPhone 4S’s reveal, he slowly drifted away from the world and finally met his death that Wednesday morning.

I have always been a fan of Mr. Jobs, not only for making such neat products to make my life easier or to waste my time on but also for always sustaining for advancement and growth in creativity. 

He was always an advocate for living each day to the absolute fullest and reaching as far as you could. Through his successes and utter low points, he continuously defied the odds and did what everyone said he could not: change the world.
