Steve Jobs: Connecting the Dots

Steve Jobs: Connecting the Dots

I am always inspired by inspirational speeches by well-known motivational and successful speakers or coaches.They are able to persuade,convince and inspire listeners to get back on their feet and start embracing life again. Being able to present your ideas clearly and concisely to a large mass of people is no easy task. Perhaps the only reason why they could capture the attention of people is the charming personas they possess.

Recently, I came across an online video about Steve Jobs’s commencement speech at Stanford University.Unlike other inspirational speeches which usually last for an hour long,Steve Jobs,co-founder and executive director of Apple Inc, was able to deliver his speech in a record-breaking time of 15 minutes. Summing up the life’s most precious lessons in 15 minutes? It was sure an amazing feat performed by a man who introduced Apple which had revolutionized the world.

Steve Job’s ” How to live before you die” speech is like an abstract of Randy Pausch’s “The Last Lecture”. He delivered his speech with so much conviction in the most earnest and humble way,sending powerful messages to young adults like myself who seek to be the movers and shakers of the world.

After watching this video by Steve Job’s , I was attempted to pen down my afterthoughts.Poetically.

Nature has revealed about the secrets of life.
Like random dust particles bombarding in the air,
Like dots that scattered everywhere
Every leap of faith you take,he whispers
Traces the dots together that weaves into reality

So,let the Genie out of the bottle, he says
Let the fumes spiral through the bottleneck
Embrace the magical moment
Shower under the miracle dust

Be a fool and dance with joy
For you know that  foolishness 
Drives away the fear of daring to dream
Think of the impossible
Like the man who has a vision of conquering the world with Apple
