I’ve just listened to a speech given by Steve Jobs to students at Stanford University in 2005.
It’s probably the most inspirational speech I have ever heard and, for me, the following quote lies at the heart of what he had to say.
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 peoples thinking.
Don’t let the noise of other’s 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.
