Steve Jobs, Remembered

In 2005, Steve Jobs delivered the commencement address to Standford University’s graduating class.

This speech was the catalyst that started me on my writing journey. He reminded me that my time is limited. He encouraged me to follow my heart and intuition.

He inspired me to dream.

At the end of the speech, he wished for all of the listeners to “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.”

I embraced that message then, and have carried it with me since.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

Thank you, Steve Jobs. I will.

    I’m so shocked. It is indeed a sad day for it is a big loss for all of us. Steve was an amazing human being from what I’ve understood from his speech. And it will continue to inspire me too, Liza.

      When he talks about connecting the dots backward, he’s definitely there as one of the “dots” in my life. Truly, many of the life changing thoughts I’ve had precipitated from him or his work (Mac, iPhone, etc)
