This isn’t new. But it hit the core of me. Found this article about Steve Jobs via John’s blog. Here is an excerpt about being yourself, as hard as you can. I find it true the thing that resonated the most with my generations creatives is that they believed in Steve’s way of doing things and the core way he thought about problems. It wasn’t looking at it from the outside in, it was about developing a core and pushing those ideas out into the fold.

“I hope the message that people really take, really internalize is that being yourself, as hard as you can, is the way to have important and lasting impact on our world. That might be in the context of technology. It might be in the context of technology, or the arts, or sports, or government, or social justice — or even in the context of your family and close friends.

It almost doesn’t matter. The thing that matters most is to figure out what’s important to you, what’s core to you, and do that. Be that. And do it as well as you possibly can, every single day.
