Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. Don’t Settle. RIP Steve Jobs 1955-2011

I owe my career to Mr Jobs. It was his innovations that allowed me to work as a Sigma 7 Analyst for Motorola back in 1991. That job begat others. I often think that Apple really started it all – everyone else just copied what they did.

A friend of mine found Mr Job’s Commencement Speech to the 2005 graduating class of Stanford University. In it, he tells three stories from his life. Just three stories. Connecting the dots, Love and Loss, and Life and Death. Three stories with very profound messages. The video is only 15 minutes long and totally worth watching.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and 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 it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” ~ Steve Jobs

    • He did, didn’t he? When I heard that he’d resigned from Apple a month ago, I’d thought it was for another business deal. I had no idea that his pancreatic cancer had returned. He was an amazing man.
