As you may or may not know, Steve Jobs is up for Times Person of the Year having been nominated by Brian Williams. I believe he is the best considering the competition (Herman Cain and Caycee Anthony are just a few “stunning” competitors, come on people we all know Caycee killed her daughter). But why now? Why would now be the best time to nominate him? The answer is simple, he may not have turned out another revolutionary product this year with the exception of the iPad 2 of course, which to be honest isn’t that notable, I love my iPad 2 but it’s not something that would grant him an award this big.
It’s his whole life’s work that gives him the title. He, as we all sadly know, died last month. He died still doing what he loved to do. And that is what a dreamer and an innovator does. They do their job right up until the end, he stood up against his death and he said that he was going to change the world and by golly he did. He proved that any one person is possible of achieving greatness if they put their minds to it and they dream. The people who are crazy enough to change the world are the ones who do. And he proved that in his life. Maybe that’s something we all need to do. Our economy is struggling and we aren’t doing anything about except electing idiotic politicians that keep all the money to themselves.
He has taught us that we can dream big and achieve big. His whole life was something he built from his garage. It is this ideal that can get this country back on it’s feet. I believe that he should be the person of the year because he not only changed the world in his own way but he also has showed us that we can do the same if we follow what we believe and not any one else. You only have one life to live, make the best of it. It is not only his products but his ideals that shouldn’t only land him person of the year but person of the decade as well.

for Steve Jobs nomination as Times person of the year
“Steve Jobs, really truly deserves it, I still cry when I think of him passing away, wish he would have sacrified more time on normal treatment instead of concentrating on work so much… Miss you Steve and hope to see you on the cover of times soon!”
I have followed Steve Jobs and his works since I was in college and I have always been awed by his brilliance. He has dedicated his life working on technological breakthroughs to make life easier and better for everyone. And not only that, he has also shared a lot of inspirations about love for work and life in general.
One quote he made that really changed my perspective in life is this:
“And it’s up to me to make it what I want it to be. Likewise, it’s up to you to make your life the life you want to be living.”
He may not know I exist but I am a fan of him and his life. And I know that there are a lot of people like me out there. And right now, we are one in wishing he gets the recognition for the Time’s Person of the Year. He may not be with us anymore but his works and inspiration will live within our hearts forever.
