Tonight I watched the news programs about the death of Steve Jobs, the college drop-out turned garage computer creator turned genius behind the Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad products and Pixar studio.
Jobs had a almost Zen like approach to his iconic products and his life, as revealed during his 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University.
At this time, he had already co-founded Apple and been fired by age 30, re-emerged for the renaissance of Apple’s best days, and batted pancreatic cancer.
At age 56, he tells the young graduating students some sage advise. Find what you love in your life and in your career, and "love what you do."
"Your time is limited."
"Don’t waste it by living someone else’s life."
For those reading this blog, take a minute and reflect on where you are right now. Do you love your life and your job? Are you really living your life?
Or are you wasting your limited time here on planet Earth by listening to the noise created by others?
