Steve Jobs on life, love, loss and death

Spend the next fifteen minutes watching Steve Jobs address College graduates from Stanford University in December 2009 * (Update – my mistake – it was from 2005. Explains why he didn’t mention the liver transplant). He takes you on a journey through his life. You won’t regret the time spent. If you’re smart, you’ll find time in the classes you teach to show it to your students. Steve’s message,

“you can’t connect the dots looking forwards, you can only count them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future”

is an important one. Steve’s road to success has not been an easy one, but he has risen above adversity.

Herein lie messages our students need to hear.
