“There is always someone who is hearing something for the first time”
That was a response from a friend of mine who works in radio when I asked why he shares with his listeners “old news”.
I never forgot that wisdom.
And so while I cannot imagine there exists a person who is not familiar with Steve Jobs’ 2005 Standford University commencement speech, I heed my friend’s wisdom that “there is always someone who is hearing something for the first time” and I share Jobs speech with you.
Perhaps one might think that the one and only Steve Jobs has lived a life of luxury, success, fame and fortune and that he couldn’t possibly be able to relate to the common man struggling to succeed amidst adversity.
You will think differently after listening to the sound, comical and useable advice from Steve Jobs, the man who was fired from the company he started and turned that adversity into . . .
Well, I don’t want to ruin the surprises for you. Watch and be inspired.
