思考のメモ JOBS

Silicon Valley is all about changing the world. It's all about changing the world for the better, and if you do that, you can be incredibly successfull economically.

Steve Jobs  
(「Loop」september 2003, Roger McNamee interview )

"make the world a better place" ...The older tells to the younger, "if you make the world a better place, you are allowd to be incredibly successful economically". Then they decide to do the same way.  simple and strong.


Jobs' speech at Stanford (after recovering his cancer). It is really really impressive.

I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

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.


wish you listen to it all . really impressive.
