Jobs at Stanford
I'm a sucker for graduation speeches because they often allow a person to talk in a more thoughtful way than they would otherwise. A case in point...
Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs gave the graduation speech at Stanford University
over the weekend and gave an interesting talk that is getting quite a lot of buzz
Here is the SFChron's story:
Apple CEO hits serious note at Stanford In keynote speech, Jobs tells graduates not to waste time [San Francisco Chronicle, 6.13.2005]
Apple CEO Steve Jobs gave a somber and intensely personal commencement speech at Stanford on Sunday, a moody contrast to a ceremony that included Frisbee-playing graduates in tiny red swim trunks frolicking around Stanford Stadium during the traditional "Wacky Walk."
Stanford has posted the full text of the speech
. You need to read the speech in context, but...
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.
