Steve Jobs In Heaven

I just finished the Biography of Steve Jobs – I bought the iBook version and read it on my iPhone (3G, upgraded to the new OS5). I have to admit, the iPhone is a great reading device – with the thin columns, it’s easy to speed read and so convenient to fill in gaps when waiting for someone or something and there’s nothing else to do…

I highly recommend it if you want to get into the mindset of a genius. I wouldn’t advise you mirror his abrasive, self-centered and egotistical personality traits, but then he’s got a lot of great characteristics and superb talents for you to choose from!

Anyway, this collection of cartoons honoring Steve Jobs was sent to me by Karen Bonanno, a School Library Management System Specialist.

Thanks Karen for sharing.

It’s quite a legacy he leaves behind – kind of makes you reflect on your own legacy doesn’t it?

A picture is worth a thousand words

Today’s blog post says it better than (most) words ever could.

Life is to be lived, shared and enjoyed with others. Enough said.

A sad day that makes you stop and take notice

Here I am in front of my beautiful 27″ iMac and I am still in shock. I can’t believe Steve Jobs died. 56 years old. It’s not fair. The world still needs him. His family still needs him. He did so much good so many. It’s just not fair…

I have been blessed with very little tragedy in my life/family, which is one of the reasons deaths like this hit me so hard.

He believed in a vision for the world and created magic. Mac-gic that we fell in love with. Magic that is timeless and now his legacy.

Which brings me to today’s topic.

What is YOUR LEGACY?

What will you leave behind when you leave this earth?

What will people say/think/feel about WHO you were and what you DID?

This is a day to reflect on it.

Tomorrow is the day to set your new path.

Steve would want you to explore your ultimate dreams and aspirations – he certainly did, all the way to the very end.

Sleep Is Awesome

The Michael Jackson trial is going on in the United States, at the center of it all is Michael’s long-term battle with insomnia (among other ailments).

Sleep deprivation is considered a form of torture which tells you how important it actually is.

That being said, not many people take it seriously as a performance enhancer or inhibitor.*

As a public speaker, I see it all the time at seminars, workshops and events. People drifting off – not because of the content, but because they are dead tired.

They openly acknowledge lack of sleep and on-going fatigue… Yet very few deal with it, claiming there is too much to do, not enough time.

Today, I just wanted to share with you an infographic that is a great reminder of the importance of good, sound sleep.

Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite.

All elite athletes recognise the importance of sleep and recovery. There is a balance to be achieved and it’s different for each person and it varies from season to season and at different times in your life. One thing is for sure – it is either enhancing your performance (in business, sport, life) or inhibiting it.

Simple as that.

Think about it – in fact, sleep on it and let me know what you think tomorrow morning.
