An Unusually Profound Commencement Speech



I watched this video of Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs giving this year's commencement address at Stanford and have found myself repeatedly reflecting back on his words. In just 15 minutes, Jobs explains from personal experience how life's setbacks often contain phenomenal opportunity. And his comments about using our own mortality as the gauge for deciding our life's path bears much wisdom.

This is powerful stuff.

Greg, well worth the fifteen minutes. I'm going to share, to give it away as you have done and in the giving, perhaps, another soul will find fifteen minutes well spent. Thanks.

Thank you for the comment, Tree. In a relatively brief amount of time, Steve Jobs snapped a lot of things into sharp focus for me and, it sounds, like for you too. I'm glad you're going to distribute it. Thanks for stopping by.
