Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Speech

You cannot connect the dots looking forward so you have to trust that the dots will connect in the future so you can have the confidence to follow your heart even if it leads you off the well worn path

Being a beginner can be freeing

Even when life hits you in the head with a brick, don’t loose faith

You have got to find what you love. The only way to be truly satisfied is to 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 what you love, keep looking, don’t settle

If today was the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?

Remembering you are going to do is the best way to avoid the trap of believing you have something to loose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart

Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t live with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let other people’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become

Stay hungry, stay foolish
