Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

Hello Alice! Since you liked that video so much, I am reposting it here, also having a few questions to ask you:

1) Which of the two stories impressed you the most in Steve Jobs' speech? Why?

2) 'You've got to find what you love,' Jobs says. What does this mean exactly? Do you agree with this statement?

You can find the speech in written form here. Have a fascinating weekend, Alice!  


  1. 1) The story about death made an impression on me, because all things fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.The death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it.Our time is limited so we don't waste it living like we should be here forever.The most important is to follow our heart and intuition.

    2) "You've got to find what you love". I agree with this statement and what is means for me is that:everything I did until now it was only what I love to do. Work fills a large part of people's life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what they believe is great work.And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. I didn't lose my faith although sometimes life hits me in the head. And the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.If there is someone who hasn't found it yet, keep looking.

  2. 1) The most important *thing is to...

    2) what *it means *to me is that:everything I *have done until now *was only what I love to do

    Once again, fantastic comment!!!! Do you know what? I will assign activities like this one all the time since you are so good at them! (Evil laugh!)
