Steve Jobs died a year ago today. Apple honors Steve on their home page www.apple.com today with a video tribute. I wrote a post earlier this week about using your time during your Annual Planning session to skate to where the puck is going to be, not where the puck is, quoting the great Wayne Gretzky "Skating to where the puck is going to be". Amazingly, Apple's video tribute opens with Steve Jobs quoting the exact same quote!
I remember Steve Jobs by renaming Columbus Day to Steve Jobs Day. Columbus Day is this coming Monday. Steve Jobs was the pioneer who took us into the unexplored territory of computing and changed at least 6 or 7 different industries. So for me and my family, this coming Monday is Steve Jobs Day.
Thanks again Steve. You definitely put a ding in my universe.
