For the first time that I can recall, regularly scheduled network television was interrupted last night to bring news of the passing of a businessman. Not a political figure. Not a pop star. Not a humanitarian.
But Steve Jobs was much more than a businessman. In fact, writers, and newscasters search for words to describe him—visionary, leader, genius, talented, creative, inventor, revolutionary and perfectionist. One could even say that Steve Jobs was a game-changer. There’s no doubt that whatever hardware you are using to read this post contains some sort of technology that either was invented, imagined or influenced by Steve Jobs. He not only changed technology, he changed our lifestyle.
It makes me think about what I’m doing in my life with the game-changing moments that present themselves. Am I using my life positively to be a game-changer for someone else, or to create game-changing events, atmospheres, ideas and relationships? It’s something to think about.
