Quote of the Night

"Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."

--the late Steve Jobs, quoted endlessly on Tumblr tonight by a lot of people who follow their hearts... to spend as much time as possible on a social networking site not doing anything.

Is that irony or something else?
