Like many, Steve Jobs had an influence on my life. He taught me a lesson recently. It was in his passing that I learned not to wait to seek out my heroes. Steve Jobs did not live that far from me but we didn’t know each other. He was a distant mentor on a pedestal of brilliance and accomplishment that most of us feel is out of reach. Perhaps you have a hero or someone you feel this way about? Perhaps, like me, there are those that are gone now and you wish that you had expressed how you felt about them.
