Blog > Steve Jobs on connecting dots, doing what you love and death – oh, and failure!

September 29, 2008

Steve Jobs makes this commencement speech at Stanford University. It’s not the best presentation, but the messages are good. He talks about connecting the dots – and this is only possible by looking back. You can’t know in advance that the dots will connect. So you need to keep looking for what you love – in life and in work. He says the only way to do great work is to do what you love. Sometimes you might discover what that is early. Or you might have to keep looking. Don’t settle. And follow your heart and intuition.
