A Motivational Speech by Steve Jobs @ Stanford's Commencement in 2007

It has been about two years since I first saw this motivational speech from Steve Jobs. I decided to post it here since it is just as relevant and moving today especially in the times that we live in today.



As a followup to this video I wanted to share with you that Jobs has temporarily taken a leave of absence for health reasons and of my 2007 stock investments, Apple is the only one that shows a profit. Others can learn a lot from Steve Jobs and Apple, Inc. and after his health scare he more than likely prepared for someone else to take over the helm at Apple. This unfortunately was not the case with cosmetic industry pioneers Helena Rubenstein & Elizabeth Arden (see the PBS debuted documentary film The Powder & the Glory by Ann Carol Grossman and Arnie Reisman) who did not plan for a successor.

Until I Blog again, remember not to take life too seriously and make sure you tell someone that is close to you how much you care for them.

Thanks for reading,

John :)
