I’ve collected just a few pieces of text to help you know the man who essentially created the world you now inhabit (that’s a $100 word for live in!).

As you read through and listen to these voices of goodbye, think about what a person’s legacy means.


What will you leave the world? How will you have made it a better place?
I found this image to capture how I feel about Jobs’ impact on the company he founded, was fired from, and ultimately brought back to life.

Steve Jobs dies and the entire world finds out/tweets/texts about it on the devices he created. That’s not a bad way to go.

This is a speech Jobs gave in 2005 at Stanford University. As you listen, think about why he organizes his thoughts into a series of three stories. Write about them and how you can apply what he’s learned about himself to your own life.
Read the following poem (it’s one of my favorites)…Write your thoughts about the poem, but also, connect it to the death of Steve Jobs,  and to your own legacy. How would you answer the last two lines of the poem?
Poetry 180 – The Summer Day

Today’s poem holds that the act of attention is a form of prayer. Who made the world? Who made the swan, and the black bear? Who made the grasshopper?

Read the tribute poster, then design one for yourself. What are mottos or virtues you live your life by? How do you want to be remembered? What will your impact on the world be?



**If this is a little on the morbid side for you, design a tribute poster for someone you know or for a character from a favorite book/story.

**Alternate: Design a living tribute poster to yourself showing how you need to “stop letting other people’s voices drown out your own inner voice.”
