This is my favorite quote from Steve, ever.
I came back to this post now because I'm listening to Dr. Wayne W. Dyer's "Your Journey to Enlightenment CD1 - The Keys to Higher Awareness" at the moment and he's saying something very similar:
"..getting the focus off the centeredness of your life on the business of serving. The irony of it is that when you get to the point where you're able to do it and let go of that outcome, all of the stuff that you chased after and worked so hard for and figured you had to have, begins to chase after you and show up in your life. You're no longer on the treadmill. It's like a surrendering."
