I just became an iPhone-carrying member of the Apple World Domination sect this summer, but cannot deny that Steve Jobs was an incredible, amazing visionary. The world has lost one of its most creative, genius minds, and it's yet to be seen how things will go from this point on.
Watch the video below to see Steve Jobs' commencement speech at Stanford in 2005. I just watched this, and felt him speaking directly to me...maybe you'll feel it too.
Some notable quotables:
"Sometimes life's gonna hit you in the head with a brick - don't lose faith."
"Remembering 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."
"The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle."
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life."
Funny how, all due to this man, I went from playing Oregon Trail on a Mac in elementary school to having my period tracked on my iPhone. Technology, art and life will never be the same.
Thank you, Steve Jobs - for your words and deeds. Rest in peace.
