Steve Jobs: ‘You’ve Got To Find What You Love’

“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.”

This is the speech that Steve Jobs (Apple, Ipod, Mac, World Domination, etc) gave to students at Stanford University. Click here for the full text.

We reckon it is well worth a read if you have a free 15 minutes.

What do you think about his advice?

    Check out what Hugh MacLeod says about living your life according to your rules – floating the interesting idea of spending your time doing what naturally ‘fits’ with who you are:

    “I believe the next phase of my life has begun. I believe after many decades of being dis­trac ted by social convention, I’m finally becoming the person I was born to be.”
