This List posted by William Johnson was a great summary of Steve Jobs' commencement speect at Stanford University in June of 2005.  The only thing that I felt might be missing is the actual speech itself.  It is a compelling and powerful message that is even more powerful now after his death.  Enjoy:

Steve Jobs' Commencement Speech at Stanford University:

Steve Job's Seven Secrets of Success. Come on and steal them, he wants you to!


1. Do what you love-don't settle, passion is everything. Do it because you love it.

2. Put a dent in the universe. Develop a clear and concise vision. Have the courage to follow your heart.

3. Say no to a thousand things. Focus. Reduce the clutter, make it simple. Get the spark back. Simplicity of
having only half dozen people you consult with.

4. Kick start your brain by doing something new. Develop an inquiring mind. Unexpected connections.  The apple stores design is based on The Four Seasons.

5. Sell dreams, not products. Re-think something as an entirely new experience. Example, the iPhone revolutionized the telephone experience.

6. Create insanely great experiences.  Innovate by creating an extraordinary consumer experience.

7. Master the message. Steve re-invented the phone.  It 's all about how well you communicate.

Steve Jobs was a Genius, a Perfectionist. The ultimate visionary. Steal his secrets, he expects it!.

Steve once said " Good artists copy, Great artists steal "

Yes.  This speech is very moving.  We are not taught to use our intuition very often.  The "heart" is often what leads to greater meaning in life.

He was an amazing soul and did amazing things which make it worth our time to focus on what he believed.  I am going to put these words in front of me for the next month, thanks for the reblog.

Thanks Mary.  My favorite quote from this speech is: "Remembering that I will be dead one day is the most important tool that I've encountered to help me make the big choices in life...leaving me with what is truly important."
