With the release of the film Jobs this past weekend, we bring you a classic non-TED talk from the venerable Steve Jobs. It’s both chilling and inspiring to hear him speak of death so fondly just years before his own. (Key takeaways at the bottom)
Steve Jobs: How to Live Before You Die
You heard the man:
- Stay hungry, stay foolish.
- Death is a powerful motivator and self-assessing tool.
If you thought that the old “live every day like it was your last” adage was cliched, there is not a more well-known real-life example than that of Steve Jobs. Do you do what you love?
