Gail Hennessey's Website for teachers/young people-Reflections on Steve Jobs

"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 other's 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."Steve Jobs
As someone that has used Apple products from the beginning~ I feel that Steve Jobs helped change the world-IMACs~ IPODS~ IPHONES and IPADS. As a girl~ I remember watching the Jetson's and thinking how amazing that you could "see" someone that you were talking with on the telephone(or computer). Steve Jobs helped make this a reality in my world! As Steve Job's company shared in commercials for Apple Computers in the 1990s-"Think Different"~ don't be afraid to be a "round peg in a square hole"!
