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.
