“You Got To Find What You Love”-Steve Job
The man who helped change the technology landscape in the world is no more. He passed away yesterday and with his death , his visionary thinking and flair for creatively applying technology to simplify complicated electronics will be missed by many who have become fans of Apple products.
However, many still could remember the portion of Job’s Stanford commencement speech in 2005 especially the part where Job said: "You got to find what you love" (youtube 8:07 minutes). Here is the snippet:
"You’ve got to find what you love. 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 and don’t settle. 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 find it.
Don’t settle. ~ Steve Jobs"
No matter what it is you’re doing right now, if you’re not passionate about it, then it’s not worth doing. As Steve said, our time here is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
