Photography: Personal postcards

Lately I have started collecting the panoramic photographies from the different trips that I have done over the last couple of years and put them into kind of a postcard format. I enclose some of them and I will try to upload newer ones regularly.
This ones from New Zealand.

Misc: The Top Ten Lessons Steve Jobs Taught Us

As you all probably know Steve Jobs passed away last week. He was truly one of a kind that changed the way we interact with computers and will be reminded as one of the most brilliant minds of our century. I found this interesting article about the top ten lessons that he taught us and I thought it was worth to share. 

1. The most enduring innovations marry art and science
2. To create the future, you can’t do it through focus groups
3. Never fear failure
4. You can’t connect the dots forward – only backward
5. Listen to that voice in the back of your head that tells you if you’re on the right track or not
6. Expect a lot from yourself and others
7. Don’t care about being right.  Care about succeeding
8. Find the most talented people to surround yourself with
9. Stay hungry, stay foolish
10. Anything is possible through hard work, determination, and a sense of vision

A long time ago I started thinking why there was some people that was head and shoulders over the rest of the human beings. There are some people that are unique as Mr. Jobs, elite sportsmen or artists and they seem to be in a different level that the "ordinary" people. At some point I started thinking that we all had an innate talent for something specific but that only a few people was able to find it. A few years later I came across a book from Mr. Ken Robinson titled "The Element" that was precisely talking about this same topic. In the book he talks about dozens of examples of people that had found that inner "element" and that became very successful in what they did. It was really nice to see that there were some "theories" about something that had been intriguing me for years. Though, I have recently started thinking that I am not quite sure that everyone has that hidden gem inside. It seems to be very difficult to find passionate people about what they do and I personally find quite difficult to find people that inspire me with their energy and they attitude. Sometimes I am thinking that maybe not everyone has that inner need of doing what they are meant to do. They probably fulfil their lives with other things and they might not have that voice in the back of their heads that Mr. Jobs talked about or that voice might be too weak to be heard. It seems to me that there is people like Steve Jobs that could not have lived another life. He had something burning inside his guts that was beyond his own control and that was somehow leading him. I have started questioning myself if every human being has that little spark waiting to be ignited or if instead that is something genetic that not everyone has. Probably nature is smart enough and only puts those gens in a few people otherwise, how would it be if the planet earth were flooded with Steve Jobs kind of people?

In any case another big lesson that we have learned from Mr. Jobs passing is that money can not guarantee you health and that we should be able to put money in the right place of important things in life.
