Steve Jobs gave a valedictory to the graduating class at Stanford in 2006 that is considered a classic and has been widely quoted: follow your passion; don’t live someone else’s life. Sound, brilliant, observations.
The part of that speech that resonates for me and that isn’t as widely quoted: “When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.’ It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?'”
“And whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”
How about you?? I still ask myself that question.
