15 minutes worth taking

6 Oct

Unless you have been living under a rock these past 24 hours, you know that Steve Jobs, Apple CEO and lifetime entrepreneur and innovator, passed away yesterday at his home in Palo Alto after losing a battle with cancer. Amid all the coverage about his extraordinary life, I came across a video of him delivering the commencement speech at Stanford University for the class of 2005, after having been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I did not expect to listen to the whole speech, but after just a few minutes, I was captivated – not by his polished speaking style (he is a geek at heart), but by the content of his message. Check it out – it runs 15 minutes.

Words I love: “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs
