This is the text of the Commencement address by Steve
Jobs, CEO of Apple
Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on
June 12, 2005.


I am honored to be with you today at your commencement
from one of the
finest universities in the world. I never graduated
from college. Truth be
told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a
college graduation. Today I
want to tell you three stories from my life. That's
it. No big deal. Just
three stories.


The first story is about connecting the dots.


I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6
months, but then stayed
around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before
I really quit. So
why did I drop out?


It started before I was born. My biological mother was
a young, unwed
college graduate student, and she decided to put me up
for adoption. She
felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college
graduates, so
everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth
by a lawyer and his
wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at
the last minute that
they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on
a waiting list, got a
call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an
unexpected baby boy; do
you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological
mother later found out
that my mother had never graduated from college and
that my father had
never graduated from high school. She refused to sign
the final adoption
papers. She only relented a few months later when my
parents promised that
I would someday go to college.


And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively
chose a college that
was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my
working-class parents'
savings were being spent on my college tuition. After
six months, I
couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I
wanted to do with my
life and no idea how college was going to help me
figure it out. And here I
was spending all of the money my parents had saved
their entire life. So I
decided to drop out and trust that it would all work
out OK. It was pretty
scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the
best decisions I ever
made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the
required classes
that didn't interest me, and begin dropping in on the
ones that looked
interesting.


It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so
I slept on the floor
in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢
deposits to buy food
with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every
Sunday night to get
one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I
loved it. And much of
what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and
intuition turned out to
be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:


Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best
calligraphy instruction
in the country. Throughout the campus every poster,
every label on every
drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I
had dropped out and
didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to
take a calligraphy
class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif
and san serif
typefaces, about varying the amount of space between
different letter
combinations, about what makes great typography great.
It was beautiful,
historical, artistically subtle in a way that science
can't capture, and I
found it fascinating.


None of this had even a hope of any practical
application in my life. But
ten years later, when we were designing the first
Macintosh computer, it
all came back to me. And we designed it all into the
Mac. It was the first
computer with beautiful typography. If I had never
dropped in on that
single course in college, the Mac would have never had
multiple typefaces
or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just
copied the Mac, its
likely that no personal computer would have them. If I
had never dropped
out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy
class, and personal
computers might not have the wonderful typography that
they do. Of course
it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward
when I was in
college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards
ten years later.


Again, 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.


My second story is about love and loss.


I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in
life. Woz and I started
Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked
hard, and in 10 years
Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage
into a $2 billion
company with over 4000 employees. We had just released
our finest creation
— the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just
turned 30. And then I got
fired. How can you get fired from a company you
started? Well, as Apple
grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented
to run the company
with me, and for the first year or so things went
well. But then our
visions of the future began to diverge and eventually
we had a falling out.
When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So
at 30 I was out. And
very publicly out. What had been the focus of my
entire adult life was
gone, and it was devastating.


I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I
felt that I had let the
previous generation of entrepreneurs down - that I had
dropped the baton as
it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard
and Bob Noyce and tried
to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very
public failure, and I
even thought about running away from the valley. But
something slowly began
to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn
of events at Apple had
not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I
was still in love. And
so I decided to start over.


I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting
fired from Apple was
the best thing that could have ever happened to me.
The heaviness of being
successful was replaced by the lightness of being a
beginner again, less
sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the
most creative
periods of my life.


During the next five years, I started a company named
NeXT, another company
named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman
who would become my
wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first
computer animated feature
film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful
animation studio in the
world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought
NeXT, I returned to
Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at
the heart of Apple's
current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a
wonderful family together.


I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I
hadn't been fired
from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess
the patient needed
it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick.
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.


My third story is about death.


When I was 17, I read a quote that went something
like: "If you live each
day as if it was your last, someday you'll most
certainly be right." It
made an impression on me, and since then, for the past
33 years, I have
looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself:
"If today were the
last day of my life, would I want to do what I am
about to do today?" And
whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in
a row, I know I need
to change something.


Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most
important tool I've ever
encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Because almost
everything — all external expectations, all pride,
all fear of
embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away
in the face of
death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going
to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of
thinking you have
something to lose. You are already naked. There is no
reason not to follow
your heart.


About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a
scan at 7:30 in the
morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas.
I didn't even know
what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was
almost certainly a type
of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect
to live no longer
than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go
home and get my
affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare
to die. It means to
try to tell your kids everything you thought you'd
have the next 10 years
to tell them in just a few months. It means to make
sure everything is
buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for
your family. It
means to say your goodbyes.


I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that
evening I had a biopsy,
where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through
my stomach and into
my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a
few cells from the
tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told
me that when they
viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors
started crying because it
turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer
that is curable with
surgery. I had the surgery and I'm fine now.


This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I
hope its the closest
I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it,
I can now say this
to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a
useful but purely
intellectual concept:


No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to
heaven don't want to die
to get there. And yet death is the destination we all
share. No one has
ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because
Death is very likely
the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change
agent. It clears out
the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is
you, but someday not
too long from now, you will gradually become the old
and be cleared away.
Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.


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.


When I was young, there was an amazing publication
called The Whole Earth
Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation.
It was created by a
fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo
Park, and he brought
it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late

all made with
typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was
sort of like Google in
paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it
was idealistic, and
overflowing with neat tools and great notions.


Stewart and his team put out several issues of The
Whole Earth Catalog, and
then when it had run its course, they put out a final
issue. It was the
mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of
their final issue was a
photograph of an early morning country road, the kind
you might find
yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous.
Beneath it were the
words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their
farewell message as they
signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have
always wished that for
myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish
that for you.


Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.


Thank you all very much.

I like the way it's copied and pasted so that it's formatted all weird, which makes it look like some pretenetious piece of pseudo-poetry. Try reading it like one, with intonations and stresses, it's beautiful. Or annoying, or something.

I slept on the floor
in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢
deposits to buy food
with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every
Sunday night to get
one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I
loved it. And much of
what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and

be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:

Isn't this a great picture of lightning? I used to see lightning like this practically every summer when I lived in North Dakota. Not like the second one, though, that looks like the face of God. I can't imagine ever seeing lightning like that.

Yeah, lightning's awesome.



This one reminds me of Ghostbusters for some reason.

Man, that is great. Of course, that didn't happen all at once, but even one would be outstanding.

I used to go "riverwalking" when I was younger, and we'd get the best picture from the middle of the lake. Course, it was deeper!

Great pic.

Nope - just a random, useless/useful and completely wonderful find on Google.

As was this...
