Stay hungry, stay foolish.

>>> Today the tech and creative industry, as well as the entire world, lost a true visionary and leader, Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs. In memory, I’d like to share five Steve Jobs quotes (including the title of this post) that truly remind me to reshape the way I think about my job, my experiences, my dreams and my life. Below you’ll also find Steve’s graduation commencement speech at Stanford from a few years ago. I promise, the speech, appropriate titled “How to Live Before You Die” is worth the 15 minute watch. 

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

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.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.

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.

  5. So, goodbye to Steve Jobs. You were the Apple of many an eye. His death wasn’t exactly unexpected but the reality has still come as a shock to many, going from the heartfelt tributes evident on many sites. What stays with me most about him is he said, like others, you have to love what you do. That’s his legacy for me.
