I'm a relatively new person to Apple products. I mean I've had an iPod for years, but only started using an iMac early this year and just recently converted to an iPhone. I regret letting my fear of not being able to learn to use a Mac hold me back for so long--it's the best computer I've ever had and, as a result, has caused me to consider Steve Jobs' mind a lot since purchasing. Just like the guy in-store told me, all you need is intuition to use it. On top of that it's just beautiful to look at. We lost a true innovator yesterday.
I wasn't going to say anything about his passing, but then came across Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address. After watching a couple times and getting a lot of encouragement following a particularly tough day at work, it seemed fitting and timely to share with you. If you haven't already heard his speech I highly recommend finding a quiet spot to take it in. As someone who has taken an unorthodox career path and made more than a few 'road less traveled' life decisions, his words really spoke to and encouraged me. I hope they do the same for you--especially if you're having one of those 'what the hell am I doing with my life?' moments.
Rest in peace, Steve Jobs.
