Hit in the Head with a Brick – Steve Jobs

steve jobs

🎦 Steve Jobs was faced with some of the worst rocky soil experiences ever when he was fired in 1985 from Apple, the company he co-founded.  But he never stopped innovating.  It was in his nature.  No one predicted the iPod, iPhone, or iPad.

Steve shared some of his best insights as a commencement speaker at Stanford University in 2005 when he said... “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love.  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.”  He sounds a lot like a good Pastor.
