Random Thoughts of a Disordered Mind

Steve Job’s Advice at Commencement 2005


From Steve Job’s 2005 commencement address at Stanford University:

“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 others’ 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.”

So honest, so clear, so intense, so hard to live.  But Steve Jobs did it and oh my, look at what he accomplished in his too-short life.

  1. And look what he’s allowed the rest of us to accomplish. Truly paying it forward.

  2. I listened to the whole address and it’s all really good. It’s really admirable to live so intensely.

  3. on our way to Washington DC for the holiday week. Hope you have a fun holiday. Be back the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
