Impressive Steve Jobs ...

I think the only way you can succeed in life is by being a maniac. Steve Paul Jobs is one.

Please spend 15 minutes of your time watching the attached video. It's well worth your time. Don't get carried away, but this is one of the most impressive speeches.



Thanks to Youtube and in my eyes, this is the strength of Youtube and that's why Google bought them for $1.6B. I will write about that later.

This was truly a great one! It has the power to get a person to think to take life-changing decisions. It reminded me of a very old poem, 'Vedi Mule' by Marathi poet, Keshavsoot. I think we studied it in the 10th grade Marathi class. Do you have that poem by any chance?

Yes, I have "sampoorNa keshavsoot".
A printout of the poem is going to be on your way
(of course e-mail) tomorrow ...

Another great person has also said similar thing - Two roads diverged in the wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost.

Great video - thanks for sharing. It was inspiring to say the least.

I would like to share one quote from George Bernard Shaw which I truly come to believe in the last few years:

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw

I'd definitely start doing Steve's morning reminder trick, drive has been up and down for me, even depression, I keep losing sight of what's important. I know what I love to do, what I want to become, and have quit my job to pursue. But motivation is so hard to maintain.

Interesting video. But isn't it possible his words were lost on the young ears of his audience? After all, he is preaching the virtues of non-conformity, of dropping out and relying on belief in oneself, to a set of highly conformist drop-INs.

Not to suggest that they are incapable of hearing the message, but I think you are either born knowing about self-reliance (as he apparently was), or else you eventually learn it by being walloped over the head with its opposite for many years. If these kids have not already grasped the wisdom of what he is saying, they must probably tread a long and painful path before these words have the opportunity to strike bone again.

The only thing I take issue with is this: I don't care much for proportional fonts. If Courier were the only font in the world, I would die happy, lol.
