Steve Jobs on Life

I like re-posting this from time to time.

Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer, delivered this speech at Stanford’s commencement ceremony in June 2005. I somehow doubt that the graduating class could have truly appreciated what Jobs is saying here. (At that age, I couldn’t have.) But if you’re a little further down the road, you’ll understand that Jobs (who ironically never graduated from college) points to a simple set of guidelines that can make the difference between living a fascinating and so-so life. Sadly, these principles get lost all too often in the noise, inertia and blur of everyday life.

By the way, the podcast version of this speech consistently remains the number #1 podcast on Stanford’s iTunes site. You can download it in video here, or audio here.
