I’m not one for hugely inspirational videos, talks and books; but what is inspiring is when people share their life with you – a life that has been imperfect, and successful despite that, or because of that. One never knows where one’s choices will lead us, but as Steve Jobs (a less cocky, more humble, more human Jobs) points out, we won’t know until we take the plunge. Things we may know from his life, things we may have heard about but are still moving when you hear him talk.

Job’s 3 life lessons:
1. You cannot connect the dots forward, but you can, when you look backwards. So trust in the direction your life is taking.
2. I had been rejected, but I hadn’t stopped being in love (about his work). The only way to do great work is to love what you do…keep looking, don’t settle.
3. Your time is limited, so don’t live someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is someone else’s thinking. Don’t let others’ opinions drown out your inner voice.
