Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

Saturday,  10/19/13  04:47 PM

Sensei JobsToday is the second anniversary of Steve Jobs' passing, and to commemorate Business Insider posted a few key quotes.

I like them all but especially this one, headed:

On your working life

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.”

It's always been a nice sentiment and all the more so for being true, but it's especially relevant to me just now.  Stay tuned as I will have some interesting news about *my* working life.

This quote is from Steve's amazing Stanford Commencement speech, delivered in June 2005 when he was already ill with the cancer that ultimately took his life (though we didn't know it at the time).  The speech ends, Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish.  Indeed...
