At his Stanford University, Steve Jobs, CEO and co-founder of Apple and Pixar, urges us to pursue our dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself.

How to Live before you die”, Steve Jobs

The 3 Life lessons from Steve Jobs:

1– Connecting the dots: Listen to your Guts + Follow your heart => The Destiny

“you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

2- Love: Love what you do, you got to find what you like. Great work comes from what you love to do.

“Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

3- Don’t be trapped by dogma: Follow your dream and don’t get distract from others’s opinions. “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.”

ImageConnecting the unconnected.

Forcing connections between two totally unrelated subjects were extremely creative and imaginative. By stimuating one idea from one subject and make the connection with another subject will lead some ideas by using the 5 senses. If you focus on two subjects for a period of time, you will see relationships and connections that will trigger new ideas and thoughts that you cannot get using your unusual way of thinking.
