Here are some words of wisdom from Steve Jobs from his Commencement Speech at Stanford in 2005.
Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address
Steve Jobs said at the 2005 Stanford University Commencement:
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path, and that will make all the difference.”
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle.”
“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 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.”
Heartfelt condolences to family and friends of Steve Jobs. He was one in a million.
