Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life's setbacks -- including death itself -- at the university's 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
April of 2019 and I still come back to this for motivation. I really wish he was still with us.
This is the stuff they should be teaching in schools.
I wonder how many graduates that day revisited this speech because they weren't truly listening to his speech.
One of the greatest speeches of the 20th Century to a bunch of college grads from a college drop out. Awesomeness.
This speech is actually one of Steve Jobs' greatest legacies.
