My ramblings on the speed of light and Steve Jobs.
Everybody knows that nothing can move faster than light. But it is also known that time slows down for you when you approach the light speed. So imagine, you are flying on a space ship approaching the speed of light. For you speed is a distance divided by the time you spend moving this distance. Thus it seems to you, that you are continuously accelerating and moving much faster than light.
Exactly the same thing is happening to you when you are working on something you love and are continuously improving it. From a side view it may seem that you are stuck in place but from your point of view even minor improvements in the result make a huge difference.
Steve Jobs was a person who saw things not as they are in real life, he saw things as they are intended to be in an ideal world. And he devoted his entire life striving to make our world a better place.
So, next time you want to say that there is nothing exciting in an iPhone, an iPod, or an iPad, remember that you are just a mediocre crawling at a snail’s pace while Steve Jobs was someone who approached the light speed.
