Steve Jobs address to Graduates

I’ve just watched tis 15 minute clip in which Steve Jobs tells 3 stories about his life. These stories were life defining and have three messages if you like:

  • do something you love for a job – you spend a life time doing it – doing something you love helps you join dots to decisions you made – which you can only do in hindsight.
  • getting sacked can release you to do the things you love  
  • living each day as though it were you last ensures you make decisions to follow your heart not loose the things you collect along the way.

Worth a look – I’m thinking about showing this to my teenage kids to start a conversation as they choose subjects to study.

    Hi Mark,
    Well, you can see I read your blog. This clip is in the ning and hasn’t been viewed many times which is a shame. I actually think this clip is worth everyone viewing.
    I’ve used this to support why we need a ‘concept based’ curriculum and why we need to provide a curriculum which is creative and engaging. You mentioned this in one of your recent posts about class sizes.
    Cheers Nina
