“Do you create anything?”

You’re all reading this because of Steve Jobs. Our entire adult life has been spent gilding the lilies that Steve Jobs created. No bigger influence on our lives other than the parents … and even that’s somewhat debatable.

How does — how can — anyone adequately eulogize such a person?

You don’t. You take inspiration and move forward.

And we’d like to present to you our candidate for the appropriate tribute to Steve Jobs, from an incident most of you probably wouldn’t expect:


“What have you done that’s so great? Do you create anything?”

Ask yourself that. Every day.

Answering “yes” is the best tribute that you can give Steve Jobs.
