Love What You Do

In the words of Steve Jobs a great quote sent to me yesterday by my new partner Rodrigo:

“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 as the years roll on.”

The world, not just the tech world, lost a true visionary and inspiring leader yesterday.  Just think about the past 10 years and the positive impact Apple’s products have had on most of our lives – Mac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.  How many of you found out about Job’s passing on one of his devices?  I did.

Even if Jobs has not been iconic for you personally, I highly recommend taking 15 minutes to view his Stanford commencement speech from 2005 imbedded below.  One of the best, most direct “experience life” speeches, not just about enjoying your work but truly enjoying life – and poignant given his passing.
