Steve Jobs has been heavy on my mind lately. Last week I went to watch the new Steve Jobs movie, and what struck me the most was his unapologetic way of being. It made me wonder how often we mute our own genius, in favor of making a situation more comfortable for other people. It made me wonder whether that was “right” or “wrong”. It made me wonder – what’s really important in this life? Is it the creations we leave behind? The mark we leave on the world? The people’s lives we touch while we’re here. This man’s life sparks so many questions for me.
And then there’s this beautiful commencement speech that Jobs made in 2005. One of my all-time-favorite YouTube videos.
My favorite part is when he talks about only being able to connect the dots when looking backwards, and how at the time certain things made no sense, but he just trusted that they would work out. That’s pretty much how I go through life.
