"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important thing 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." (Steve Jobs - 2005)

RIP Captain Chris

Kent @ The Financial Philosopher


I really like that quote from Steve Jobs. He really has evolved into a humble person with an outstanding perspective on life and its meaning and purpose for him.

Thanks for sharing and for your well-wishes for my father-in-law, Chris.

By the way, Chris loved the sea and was a ship captain for a few years of his life. He called me "Captain Kent" and I called him "Captain Chris."

Thanks again...
