Resurrected.

16Sep05

It must be a horrendous experience to be told that you have something in your belly that will kill you in months. The things that you think about. The regrets. The lost dreams. Then you are told later that the something can be removed and banished. You get to live.

How will that affect the way you think and live post-monster-in-your-belly scare?

In Steve Jobs’s case, live and live with a vengeance. In The Economist’s story “The Resurrection of Steve Jobs,” the experience invigorated him. Staring death in the face several times has softened him according to those who knows him, and with the latest brush, it has made him more creative.

When I heard about Jobs’s pancreatic cancer and how it was later diagnosed to be resectable, I knew that as Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs will turn the company on its head and drive it forward. Being told that he was dying, Jobs might have done a lot of thinking and along with that, had a lot of regrets. Then when given a second chance, I knew that Apple will be driven hard to achieve the dreams he has for the company. I knew that Apple employees was going to have their work cut out for them. They had to prepare to be streched to their limits because Steve Jobs has seen his own mortality. Everyone should be ready for bigger things in Apple with the resurrection of Steve Jobs.
