Poking Life

The Short of It

  • Everything around you built by people no smarter than you.
  • The minute you understand you can poke and mold life - that maybe the most important thing.

I watched Steve Jobs – One Last Thing last night (one of the newly found bonuses of being an Amazon Prime member is free streaming) and came across a quote I had never heard before. "Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is, everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you ... the minute that you understand that you can poke life ... that you can change it, you can mould it ... that's maybe the most important thing." As we get ready to close one year and start a new one, I can’t think of words that better point to a world where nothing is beyond possibility.
