Second Week of October-Lessons from Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs died on October 5, 2011. He is one of the great innovators of our time. I just heard his 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University.

Find Your Passion. Steve Jobs was raised as the adopted child of humble parents. He left Reed college because he did not want to spend his parent’s money on an expensive college education when he had yet to find his passion. Nonetheless, he never wavered in his belief in himself. He knew he had it, he just needed to find it. Once Mr. Jobs found his passion he lived it for the rest of his life.

Rise from Defeat. At a peak in his career as the head of the Macintosh group at Apple Mr. Jobs was ousted from Apple. Like the mythical bird Phoenix Mr. Jobs rose from the ashes. He later returned to Apple to make it the most innovative corporation in history.

Live Every Day. Mr. Jobs practiced the mantra of live every day as if it is your last. Someday you will be right. In the meantime if you live every day as your last day following your passion when the last day arrives you will have lived a fruitful life.

      To some, it’s just disposable electro-crap, but to many, it’s an avenue to finding themselves a place in life. I’m one. I’ll miss Steve Jobs, although I never knew him.
