  • Oh, this is fabulous!

  • This challenges me. I’m 26 years old and I still find myself entertaining thoughts of invincibility.

    • That’s a tough mindset to get over Marty. Yet it’s real that we’re not invincible and one day we’ll be gone. The sooner we realize this, the sooner we can go about building things that matter.

  • I recently finished reading (or listening to) the Steve Jobs book. He always thought he would die young.

    • That’s interesting. Never knew that about Steve Jobs. How did you like his book?

      • The book definitely gave me a different perspective on Steve Jobs. On one hand, he was a nasty, miserable man. On the other hand, he was brilliant.

        • Hmm… That makes me want to read the book even more. I’ve got a copy of it but haven’t had the chance to read the massive book.
