Update 1 dec: Steve Jobs’ Vision of the World in 46 seconds.
When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.
That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.
Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.
Update 6 Oct: Two things I learned from Steve Jobs that changed my life: 1. Think Different. 2. Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish. May he rest in peace.
At his Stanford University commencement speech, drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, CEO and co-founder of Apple and Pixar, urges us to pursue our dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself.
“Stay hungry, Stay foolish”
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
