Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

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.

Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement speech is one of my favorite motivational talks of all time. For me, it’s right up there with Baz Luhrmann’s Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen).

In just a few minutes, Steve Jobs tells you three stories from his life: his beginnings, lessons he’s learned and how he was facing the prospect of his death after his cancer diagnosis.

As I go through my life, I find myself coming back to the three lessons he shared: trust that things will work out, find what you love and live as if today is your last. These are eternal life lessons, bookmarks that you can return to again and again.

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish. Don’t give up on your dreams and keep on experimenting as you go.
