Don’t Settle – Stay Hungry – Stay Foolish

Who does not know Steve Jobs? His vision and life has made a huge impact on our generation. I came across this post. He shares his life lessons with students at Stanford in 2005. No doubt he is wonderful person around and I wish him good health.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

    What a wonderful quote and how true. The fact is that so many people though aware of the fact that we have a limited time on earth still proceed with less than a sense of urgency.

    While WE ALL are connected to humanity and are a part thereof, I believe the key to being ahppy and successful is being very much an individual.
    Yes, doing what you do, believing what you know to be true and going for what you want.

    Life is FLEETING and how to enjoy it is a decision that must be made daily. It is the worst thing to ever attempt to intrude or enroach upon the life of another.

    I hope in the next 50-years the law will evolve enough to determine what acts truly interfere with an individuals life! Who knows what time will hold. Anyhow, brings me back to what we have for NOW. We have NOW. It is a personal decision to LIVE well… Live full and Live whole for you.

    Ciao

    Really something to think about, so many people have so much to offer and contribute if only they/we not let the restrains of society’s dogma hinder us.

    Stay hungry, stay foolish…

    Do what you love, the heck with the standards 🙂
