Steve Jobs Stanford Commencement Speech 2005

Steve Jobs ... have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary

Pardon me for the late post. Some of you might have already seen this speech. This is Steve Jobs Stanford Commencement Speech in 2005. In this speech that he gave, he told the graduates 3 stories. The first story is about ‘connecting the dots.’ The second story is about ‘Love and Loss‘ and the final story that he told was about ‘Death.’ Of the 3 stories, the one that had given me the deepest impression is the story about ‘Death.’

In the final story he told about ‘Death’, he mentioned, “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 others’ 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 speech had impacted my life positively and I hope it would do the same for you.
