Replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again

Replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again

 Replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again less sure about everything it freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life during the next five years I started a company named next another company named Pixar and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife Pixar went on to create the world's first computer animated feature film Toy Story and is now the most successful animation studio in the world in a remarkable turn of events.

 Apple bought next and I returned to Apple and the technology we developed it next is at the heart of Apple's current Renaissance and Laureen and I have a wonderful family together I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple it was awful tasting medicine but I guess the patient needed it my third story is about death.

 I read a quote that went something like if you live each day as if it was your last someday you'll most certainly be right it made an impression on me and since then for the past 33 years I've looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself if today were the last day of my life what I want to do what I am about to do today and whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row I know.

 I need to change something remembering that all 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.
