Apple Inspiration – Love What You Do

If you haven’t heard yet about Steve Jobs passing, then perhaps you haven’t yet been inspired by the man.  I believe him to be a true inspiration, somewhat of an icon.  If you haven’t heard his 2005 commencement address to Stanford, go read it or watch it now (below, from YouTube).  My favourite messages from it are about believing that one day, “all the dots will connect” and it will all make sense.  Part of this is believing that with failure comes success, so we shouldn’t be afraid of failing…

AND, love what you do:

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And 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. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

Life is short, life is precious.  We should at least have fun while we’re at it.  Thanks Steve Jobs; life is more fun with my iPhone ;o)
