Steve Job's powers as a public speaker are well-known, but I never fully understood it until a few nights ago. I watched his Stanford commencement address from 2005.
I've read the talk in an email previously, but hearing it was so much more powerful. All that marketing prowess, applied to inspiring people instead of selling smartphones.
I like the part where he says that in work and relationship, you need to find what you love, and you'll know it when you find it.
He also explicitly says "Don't settle." It's nice to hear it. A good counter to the dozen times each day that you hear people urging you to give up your dreams and settle.
Also I like the part where he talks about how we're all going to die, so there's no point wasting energy on pride or fear of looking foolish.
Go Steve Jobs!
