Steve Jobs 1955-2011

A lesson for all, and my favourite quote, from the late Steve Jobs:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.”

  1. Hi Carly, I happen to love this quote from his 2005 Stanford commencement address. Though I had skimmed it a few years ago, I just printed a copy. Such great words! I don’t know if we will ever see that kind of creative genius again.

  2. Love it too. Any time I find myself getting discouraged with my writing and think I should ‘get a real job’ like everybody else, I think of these words. I’m not supposed to be anybody else. I’m a writer!
