Steve Jobs on Life

Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple Computer, delivered this speech at Stanford’s commencement ceremony in June 2005. I’ve watched it a couple times now, with about 6 months in between viewings, and each time it has struck me as worth watching every so often to keep focused on what matters.

    This is one of my all-time favourite speeches. It’s simple, personal, brief and insightful in a way that is satisfying even after multiple reads. While I’ve read the text many times before, this is the first time I’ve seen the video footage…so thank you for sharing this.

    As my partner and I are moving from the uk to the usa, we are experiencing mixed emotions from joy, trepidation to fear. This speech, by a man i already admire, made me weep, echoing words i already know inside, but need to hear, need the reinforcements and the echoing as we move forward.
    Thank you so much for this great link to a speech which could be equally called a life sermon.
