Connecting the Dots

This is the graduation speech that Steve Jobs gave at Stanford University 3 years ago.

I love it. He identifies 3 beautiful stories that lead to his success.

It makes me so grateful for random moments of "failure".

Watch the speech. You'll enjoy it.
"You can't connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something. . . because believing that the dots will connect down the road, will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference."

I am emotional. Why do some of US (ME!! Yes, ME!) need to be beaten down so often and others never get beaten down at all? That is what I don't get. Although, I would like to say, in the end, I was more like Steve Jobs than Pollyanna.

Anyway, I hope your travels home are fantasmic. You need that long time.
