Steve Jobs died yesterday.
Accolades from President Obama to the man in the street flooded the internet. People tweeted, facebooked and emailed their feelings about Steve Jobs. I re-read his speech from his 2005 Stanford University Commencement speech His insights about life, death and making a difference through your work came through. Here it is. I hope it inspires you as muchg as it has inspired me
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.
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. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
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.
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.”
