Inspiring links – take 2

I received several off-line comments to my posting on inspiring links.

The truth is that most of us need to refer to a “pick-me-up” from time to time. None of us are immune. Different things appeal to different people. And without getting too deep, I am sure that the type of “spark” is also a function of where each of us are in our lives.

I just saw a facebook link to Steve Jobs and his address at Stanford in 2005. This is one of my favourites – he tells us how we can only “connect the dots” by looking back, absorbing what has happened, and then moving on. That’s not failure, but part of the road to success.

As Jobs says and somebody requoted on utube:

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, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Have a great day.
