Words to Live By from Steve Jobs

I was just cleaning some papers from my desk, trying to get organized for Monday morning, and I stumbled upon a printed transcript of the commencement speech Steve Jobs gave at Stanford in 2005. One paragraph stuck out, enough that I wanted to share it.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma β€” 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. Everything else is secondary.

Period.
