Being comfortable and uncomfortable in our own skin - a thank you to Steve Jobs

My favourite line is by Oscar Wilde:
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

I have thought a lot about this in the past 24 hours in the light of Steve Jobs resignation as the CEO of Apple. I have never met him. I admire him because it seems to me he is comfortable in his own skin and yet at the same time he appears to me to also be uncomfortable and therefore is always pushing his own boundaries and striving to be better. I trust we haven’t seen the last of Steve Jobs and that a third comeback happens!

To be comfortable in our own skin is life’s greatest journey. It is also uncomfortable as we strive each day to be more of who we are capable of becoming, that unique, special, one-of-a-kind, each of us is.

Steve Jobs changed what's normal and will forever therefore be a hero of mine.

What are you changing that's normal, that no longer serves you and the world.
