What it takes

Just a few moments ago I found out that Steve Jobs had passed away. And I broke down into tears as I sat in a San Francisco co-working space. I never knew Steve.

I never met him.

But that didn't stop me from crying or from feeling such an immense sense of loss and despair.

To cry for a man you never knew.

To sympathize with a family that lives hundreds of miles away, one of which you don't even know their names.

That takes a certain type of person.

One who left a bit of their heart, vision and passion in everything they did.

So what does it take to have the entire world mourn over your passing?

It takes greatness.
