Great advice from Steve Jobs

My mom sent me a link to this commencement address Steve Jobs, of Apple fame, gave in 2005. In part, it says, “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.”

Even if you’re not a Mac fan (and how can you not be?), this is worth a read.
