Soul Food for Friday: Sugar Water or Changing the World?

This week’s soul food for Friday comes from Steve Jobs. In trying to persuade John Sculley to leave Pepsi and come work with him at Apple, Jobs asks Sculley, “Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?”

A bit ironic that Sculley does come to Apple, and forces Jobs out. Jobs later considered that a moment that changed his life, set him free to create, and pushed him to change the world.

If you want to catch a bit more inspiration from Steve Jobs, check out this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1R-jKKp3NA&noredirect=1 . It gives an interesting perspective that Jobs had on life, lessons learned, and facing death.

So for you what’s the sugar water pulling you today? What’s the call of God to change the world?
