"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 of 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 if thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." - Steve Job

Thank you for reminding us of the most important things in life.
