Here are the speech of Dear Darling Steve jobs @ Stanford University.
Let’s Read what he wanted to say to today’s youths in his speech.
“You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future, you have to trust in something, your inner destiny, the karma of life whatever because believing that the dots will connect along the way will give you confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you out of the worn-out path that will make all the difference My second story spins About Love and Loss I was fortunate to find what I love to do early in life and started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20 We’ve worked hard and in 10 years Apple has grown from just the two of us in a $2 billion garage with 4,000+ employees We just launched our best Macintosh innovation the year before I just turned 30 and got fired How do you get fired from a company that started so well As Apple grew we hired someone I thought was very talented to run the company With me and for the first year or so it all went well but then our vision of the future started to diverge and eventually we started to quarrel when our board of directors sided with him, and so in my thirties I went out and went very public about what was the focus of my adult life, and it was It’s devastating I didn’t really know what to do for a few months I felt like I had left the previous generation of entrepreneurs because I had dropped the baton as they passed it on to me I met up with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for this bad mistake I was a huge audience failure and I even thought of Escape from the valley, but something slowly started to dawn, I still loved what I did. I decided to start over which I hadn’t seen yet but getting fired from Apple turned out to be the best thing that could ever happen to me, the weight of success being replaced by the lightness of being a newbie again less confident about it. Everything freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life Over the next five years, I created a company I later renamed Pixar and fell in love with a wonderful woman who would become my wife, Pixar went on to create the world’s first animated movie, Toy Story and is now the most popular animation studio in the world. Animated success in the world in a wonderful turn of events Apple bought after that I went back to Apple and the technology we then developed in the heart of the current renaissance of Apple and Laureen and I have a wonderful family together I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been fired from the company Apple, it was a horrible taste but I think a patient needed it sometime sometimes life will hit you with a stone don’t lose my faith. I am convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did, you must find what you love and that is as true for work as for your lovers, your work is going to fill a large part of life and the only way to feel truly satisfied is to do what you think is work great and the only way to do great is to love what you do if you haven’t found it yet keep looking and don’t settle as with all things heart you will know when you find it and like any great relationship it gets better and better with the years so keep searching and don’t Applause My third death story settles in when I was 17, I read a quote that happened something like if you live every day as if it were your last, you’ll definitely be right, it made an impression on me, and since then over the course of the 33 Years past, I looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself if today was the last day of my life, what I want to do what I’m going to do today, and whenever the answer is no for days in a row, I know I need to change something to remember that dying soon is the most important tool I confronted her to help me make the big choices in life because Almost everything”, “All external expectations take pride in every fear of embarrassment or failure, these things fall in the face of death, leaving only what really matters, remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid falling into the trap of thinking you have something to lose You are already naked, there is no reason For not following your heart about a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer I had a scan at 7:30 and it clearly showed a tumor in my pancreas I didn’t even know what pancreas was Did the doctors tell me this was definitely an incurable type of cancer and that I should expect that I live for no more than three to six months my doctor advised me to go home and get my business in order which is the doctors code to prepare for you to die it means you try to tell your kids everything you thought you would have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months it means Making sure everything is buttoned up so that it is as easy as possible for your family means you say your good bye I live with this diagnosis all day later that evening I had a biopsy where they put an endoscope down my throat through my stomach and into my intestine they put a needle into my pancreas and I gotOn a few cells of the tumor I was anesthetized but my wife who was there told me that when they looked at the cells under the microscope, the doctor started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that can be treated with surgery, and I had the surgery, and fortunately I’m fine now applause This was the closest I’ve been to facing death and hopefully this is the closest I get for a few more decades having lived in it, I can now tell you this with a little more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept no one wanted to die even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there and yet death is the destination we all share and no one has survived it should be because death is very likely the single best invention in life a life changing agent removes the old to make room for the new now the new is you but someday not too far from now you will gradually become old and you will be dumped sorry for being so dramatic but it’s absolutely true that your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life don’t be trapped by dogma you live with consequences Thinking of others Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinions drown out your inner voice and most importantly have the courage Follow your heart and intuition they already somehow know what you really want everything else to become secondary When you were young there was a wonderful post called ‘The Whole Earth Index’ ‘ which was one of my generation’s bibles, and it was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park and he revived it with a touch of poetry It was in the late ’60s before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriter scissors and Polaroid cameras. Google’s look and paperback 35 years before Google was perfect, full of neat gadgets and great concepts, Stewart and his team put together several versions of the entire Earth catalog, and then when it ran its course, they put together a final version that was in the mid-1970s and you were your age on The back cover of their last issue was a picture of an early morning country road the kind you might find yourself navigating if you were so adventurous underneath were the words “Stay Hungry Stay Foolish” It was their farewell message that they signed Stay hungry Stay Foolish Stay hungry I have always wished for myself, And now that you’re graduating to start over, I hope you stay hungry stay foolish, thank you so much all of you.”
