You’ve got to find what you love

One of my friends, Madhur(blogs at iLeher) has sent me a link to an interesting speech by CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios,delivered on June 12, 2005.

You should read it if you haven’t already.

Link: You’ve got to find what you love – Jobs Says

I am reproducing few interesting points which I liked.

  1. I never graduated from college. Truth be told.
  2. 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.
  3. I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life.
  4. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love.
  5. The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.
  6. Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

Video of the same speech is available on YouTube.
