Steve Jobs tribute - "The only way to do great work is to love what you do."
I can't imagine any world leader
today who will have at his or her death more news coverage
or outpouring of grief by the masses in the world as Steve Jobs. The
ubiquitous, yet iconic nature of Apple products has infiltrated the world of
more men, women and children than anyone in my generation. The portable
devices that we carry, the iPods, iPhones and iPads are universal, yet
they have never become common. They have never lost their cool.
Take 15 minutes with your morning
cup of coffee and listen to Steve Jobs' commencement speech to the 2005
Stanford University graduating class. To give you a taste of what you'll
hear, here are three of my favorite quotes:
- He said, "Do what you love. . . The only
way to do great work is to love what you do."
- "Even people who want to go to heaven don't want
to die to get there."
- And, in reverently talking about the Whole Earth
Catalog, he noted the final issue they published in the 1970s. The
farewell message was: "Stay hungry. Stay foolish."
