Right Now: a small tribute to Steve Jobs


What are you waiting for?

This moment is the only moment. Do it now. Whatever it is you're waiting for, do it right now. Be who you are, right now. Take one step towards yourself, right now.

You don't need externals, you just need you and what is inside of you, shining. Let that shining come forth, let it sparkle and be free. That shining is your essence and it doesn't want to be hid under expectations and fear. It wants to be out and proud and do great things.

Don't wait. If you do, you might be too late. Don't wait. Be you right now. Right now.
"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.

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 others' opinions drown out your own inner voice."
