As we in Canada begin our thanksgiving weekend – let’s be thankful for all we have – and work to be better…maybe even great….

DO SOMETHING GREAT!!!

Those are the words of Steve Jobs.  We are all paying tribute to them.  WordPress just launched a Retro Mac Theme.  I just wanted to try it out – at least for a while – you can use it too!!

Retro Mac Theme – Homage to Steve Jobs

Originally created by Stuart Brown, Retro MacOS is now available in your WordPress.com dashboard. You can activate the theme there as usual, from Appearance → Themes, or directly from the Theme Showcase.

More words from Steve Jobs…(via Matt’s Blog http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/hero/#comment-141080)

BUILD THE BEST  YOU CAN BUILD!!!

We think the Mac will sell zillions, but we didn’t build the Mac for anybody else. We built it for ourselves. We were the group of people who were going to judge whether it was great or not. We weren’t going to go out and do market research. We just wanted to build the best thing we could build.

When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.

And finally…

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

DO SOMETHING GREAT!!
