Sunday :: Day of Renewal
Today in honor of the importance of spiritual renewal, I'm going to share this inspiring talk from Steve Jobs. I knew very little of the man before his passing yet in learning about his life, I am so deeply touched by who he was and how he lived his life.
This speech that Steve Jobs gave at Stanford is so full of wisdom for all of us. He speaks of life, of trust and of making sense of it all, by looking backwards not forward. In his words:
"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 ten years later. 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
Rest in peace Steve Jobs.
