Rest In Peace, Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

Three life stories from Steve Jobs during the Stanford commencement address in 2005.
  • Connecting the dots
"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. 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."
  • Do what you love 
"You've got to find what you love. Do what you believe is great work and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle."
  • Mindfulness of death 
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure, these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important."
