The other day I was listening to Jay Shetty’s podcast ON PURPOSE. He made me remember Steve Jobs’s powerful commencement speech to the 2005 class of Stanford University. I am a huge Steve Jobs fan although he seemed as if he could be an incredibly difficult person. Despite what appeared to be a difficult personality, Steve Jobs had an incredible work ethic and passion for excellence. As a fan, I went through a phase where I was reading and taking in all things Steve Jobs. I even considered limiting my dress code to a black turtleneck and black slacks for a while. This thought did not last very long. 🙂
I was excited when I came across this commencement speech many years ago because it gave me another glimpse into the mind of Steve Jobs. The other day I pulled it up and watched it again only to realize the message still has value today. I hope that you will take the time to check his speech out, but if you don’t have time I would say that these are the big takeaways:
- Follow your heart
- Keep looking until you find what you love
- Your time on this earth is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life
