Steve Jobs Resigns — Listen to his 2005 Stanford Commencement Speech
I never went to one of those fancy-schmancy schools with an A-list commencement speaker. Instead, I got agenda-driven hacks that used my school’s graduating class to proselytize their partisan ideas. But thanks to YouTube, I can just close my eyes, pretend I went to Stanford, and let Steve Jobs’ words of wisdom wash over me. His speech was sent my way because of his recent resignation, and I’m embarrassed to admit that I cried while listening. Perhaps I’m hormonal? Seriously though — it’s incredible. I’d encourage you to listen to it and then quit your dead-end job in favor of a more fulfilling dream. Oh that’s right — the economy has tanked and we no longer get those dream-driven choices. Enough of my jaded jargon — allow Mr. Jobs to eliminate your pessimism. And judging from the angry undertones in this post — I need to watch it again.
