Steve Jobs, US computer engineer and head of Apple Computers until he died in 2011, wrote this:"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 other's 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."

He quotes author, Jack Kerouac's "On the Road":
Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes...The ones who see things differently - they're not fond of rules - you can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things - they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do.

So on this first day of 2013, are you going to be a changer? Will you set the bar high enough to challenge yourself this year?
