R.I.P. Steve Jobs

01 R.I.P. Steve Jobs

About 30 years ago, I saw the Apple II and it was love at first sight. It sparked a love affair between this nerd and technology that continues to be a exciting as it was the first day we met. I want to thank Steve Jobs for his vision. It changed my life.

But Jobs’ influence on me has not stopped there. With his passing I came across a graduation speech he gave at Stanford and was left as inspired as I was the first day I saw my first Apple computer.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

The entire speech is below. Turn off the music, cell phone, and television for the next 14 minutes and 34 seconds.
