Novelist and English professor Mona Simpson delivered this eulogy for her brother, Steve Jobs. Not everyone will be remembered by millions, but anyone can aspire to succeed in both career and family contributions. I especially love Steve’s last words.
How will those you love be remembered? Even a couple of pages can convey the personality, values, and contributions of someone whose legacy matters to you.
You could go multi-media, like Apple’s memorial event (if you want to keep making the technology transfers), but remember Steve’s advice: “Simple can be harder than complex. . . . but it’s worth it when you get there because then you can move mountains.”
