Jobs on Staying Fresh


“It’s wonderful to have a
beginner’s mind.

– Steve Jobs (1955–2011)

Co-founder of Apple

Sales inspiration…

To me, it was strange how sad I felt about Jobs passing away Wednesday. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that at that level for someone I didn’t know personally.

I’m sure many of you had the same experience. That’s some great work.

For those who’ve not seen or read it, here’s his 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University (the transcript and the video). I find it inspiring even after reading it more than 5 times over the years (if you like it, remember to pass it along to any kids you know).

For Steve Jobs through the years, Wired has this piece. I also enjoyed the little 3-minute video tribute on the right-hand side of the page.
