I seek inspiration everywhere. But Steve Jobs and his lifework with Apple is absolutely one my top inspiration sources. Ran into this Steve Jobs Stanford Commencement Speech 2005 on YouTube. Steve shares the highs and low of his life.
What strikes me with this one is that Steve in a great way conveys the importance of not becoming a product of your business/background but instead always look for the unknown. Also the fact that sudden changes in life usually leads to something better as long as you keep our fire burning. (Something I’ve experienced myself).
Two quotes from Steve Jobs I personally live by too.
- Steve Jobs – “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to loose”
- Steve Jobs – “The only way to do great work is to love what you do”
Here’s the speech!
