Steve Jobs’ “How to Live Before You Die”
I just finished watching Steve Jobs’ 15 minute speech to the grad class at Stanford in 2005, and gained some insight into why this man is one of the most respected businessmen on earth.
Steve shares 3 amazing stories from his life, each with a highly valuable lesson…check it out for yourself. There is much wisdom, but see what the most powerful concept you get out of it is, and feel free to share with a comment below!
What gripped me most was how Steve Jobs looked in the mirror every day for the past 30 years and asked “if today were my last day, would I do what I’m about to do today?” He then says that “whenever the answer has been no too many days in a row, I know I need to change something”.
Reminding ourselves daily that we are going to die, possibly today, tomorrow, or next week, is incredibly powerful!
If you were to die tonight, would you do what you’re doing today? I wouldn’t…but I’m working on changing that.
