Every chance I get, I contemplate what products would he would be creating that would become the next ‘big’ thing, what business initiatives he would've proposed. Apple, since his death, has certainly done a phenomenal job in keeping itself and its product line afloat. However, it now lacks his persona of creativity.

Steve Jobs was known for being:

A Zen Buddhist.

Most of what holds humanity back is the chaotic, noisy, and messy environment we live in. We have normalized chaos in a way that we see it as a normal part of our lives.
