Because Steve Jobs died at such a relatively young age 56 this is destined to be regarded as a classic.
But it faces stiff competition — as the list maintained by humanity. But Jobs’s address has an unbearable poignancy just now, especially for those who knew him well. John Gruber, the blogger and technology commentator, saw him fairly recently and observed: Not old in a way that could be measured in years or even decades, but impossibly old. Not tired, but weary; discorsp ill or unwell, but rather, somehow, ancient.
But not his eyes. His eyes were young and bright, teesto weapons-grade intensity intact. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation.
Steve Jobs: Stanford commencement address, June | Technology | The Guardian
Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. I dropped out of Reed College [Portland, Oregon] after the first six months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out? It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption.
She felt very strongly that I tssto be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife.
Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: She refused to sign the final adoption disorso.
He was asked about it in the famous Playboy interview infor example, and refused point-blank to go into it. And 17 years later I did go to college. Tewto I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents’ savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months I couldn’t see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out.
And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made.
The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn’t interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting. The list continues with Larry Ellison, founder of Oracle and Michael Dell, founder of the computer firm that bears his name. This rather runs against the conventional narrative — that an expensive college education and a good degree are essential prerequisites for success.

It wasn’t all romantic. Discors much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:. Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy stevve in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, testp label on every drawer, duscorso beautifully hand calligraphed.
Because I had dropped out and didn’t have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this.
It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle ojbs a way that science can’t capture, and I found it fascinating. None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life.
But 10 years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, it’s likely that no personal computer would have them.
If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college.
But it was very, very clear looking backwards 10 years later. He was always ranting against Microsoft because they ” had no taste ” and one of his great early insights was that computers would become consumer products and, as such, would have to be attractively designed and easy to use.
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.
Steve Jobs: Stanford commencement address, June 2005
I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned And then Stevw got fired.
How can you get fired from a company didcorso started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me and for the first year or so things went well.
But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling-out. When we did, our board of directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out.
And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating. His pitch to Sculley to persuade him to leave Pepsi was: I really didn’t know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down — that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologise for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley.
But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love.
And so I decided to start over. I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It jjobs me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life. During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife.
Pixar went on to create the world’s first computer-animated feature film, Toy Storyand is now the most successful animation studio in the world. And Laurene jobx I have a wonderful family together. In a moving tribute his friend Stephen Wolfram recalls seeing this side of Jobs for the first time.
He always preferred user interfaces to languages, but he was trying to be helpful. The conversation was going on, but he said he couldn’t go to dinner, and actually he was quite distracted, because he was going out on a date that evening — and he hadn’t been on a date for a long time. He explained that he’d just met the woman he was seeing a few days earlier, and was very nervous about his date.
The Steve Jobs, so confident as a businessman and technologist, had melted away, and he was asking me — hardly a noted known authority on such things — about his date. As it turned out, the date apparently worked out — and within 18 months the discoro he met became his wife, and remained so until the end.
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. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got tssto find what you love.
And that is as true for your diiscorso 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. 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 jpbs it. When I was 17, Stanfoed read a quote that went something like: Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of nobs you have something to lose. You are already naked.
