Steve Jobs的三個小故事:生命、死亡、夢想

紀錄。領導時代的人。

Steve Jobs, 對我來說,
永遠是走在時代最前端的人。

很久以前看過的Stanford演講影片,
當時最心有戚戚焉的就是談及死亡那段了,
現在再看一次,根本就是句句經典!XD

謝謝你,總是從自己的生活中淬煉,
並帶給我們這麼多想也想不到的驚喜,
蘋果這些年來的成功,最大的原因,
我想不在產品極簡優美的軟硬體設計,雖然那是加分,
我想在於她提醒或創造人們新的思維與文化。

A memoir to the Genius and Inspiration to lead the era.
And I know we’ll meet again someday.

“about connecting the dots

Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

“about love and loss

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.”

“about death

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

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.”
