Steve Jobs Commencement Address

Yesterday, the world lost a true visionary.

Steve Jobs

Yesterday Steve Jobs died. Today his legacy carries on.

Steve Jobs, founder of Apple and Pixar, passed away at the relatively young age of 56 due to pancreatic cancer.

Or perhaps he passed away from the devastating effects on his body of the traditional medicine cancer treatments he chose to fight his cancer with.

Either way, we’ve lost a man who brought us the Apple, Macintosh, and iMac computers. He brought us the iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

We’ve watched and enjoyed family-friendly computer animated movies with incredible graphic effects such as Toy Story, Cars, and Up.

Who knows what we’ll miss out on in the future with his premature death. But Steve Jobs left not only a legacy, but a tremendous wealth of life lessons rolled up into a short 15-minute Stanford University commencement address he gave in 2005.

In three short personal stories, Steve shares how he made the most of his short time at college and connected the dots later. How success means doing what you love. And perhaps most importantly, and still timely, how living every day as if it’s your last makes all the difference in the world.

I hope you’ll take the time to watch his address to the graduating Stanford students, but make Steve Jobs’ message your own. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.
