Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Steve Jobs

by Scott Edward Walker on March 30th, 2011

To Our Clients & Friends:  Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we post a short video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics to help entrepreneurs.

This week we present Steve Jobs, obviously one of the greatest entrepreneurs who ever lived.  In this amazing, inspirational speech (his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address, which we previously posted), Steve discusses “three stories of [his] life,” with the following important takeaways:

  • You have to “follow your heart” and trust and embrace the path that you are taking (“amor fati” – to use Nietzsche’s phrase).  Indeed, you must understand, with full conviction, that “you cannot connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.”
  • “You’ve got to find what you love…. The only way to do great work is to love what you do…. Keep looking; don’t settle.”
  • “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way…to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose….There is no reason not to follow your heart….Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”
  • “Stay hungry, stay foolish.”

By the way, I’m sure many of you have already seen this video.  My advice: watch it again (and again).  Cheers, Scott
