Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

As you have probably heard, Steve Jobs passed away yesterday. He was 56 and he had cancer. I am sharing the link to his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address below. Take 15 minutes today or this weekend to watch it if you have not already. Here are some quotes from his address that I found meaningful:

"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...because believing that the dots will connect down the road, will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path and that will make all the difference."

"Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith...You've got to find what you love...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 and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it."

"Stay hungry. Stay foolish."
