Thirsty Alexis

Journey to Quench that Insatiable Thirst for Knowledge

How to live before you die: Must-See!

At his Stanford University commencement speech, Steve Jobs, CEO and co-founder of Apple and Pixar, urges us to pursue our dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself.

This is one of the most inspiring and thought-provoking videos I have ever watched — worth your 15 minutes.  I was literally getting goose bumps throughout the video.

I’m much more motivated with a clear view of my life not to settle to mediocre things  and to keep looking for that elusive something that will define my professional and personal existence.  Let me know what you think about Steve Job’s speech.

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

Absolutely right – you just need to have faith that things will work out just the way you want them to…somehow. Keep pursuing the little things, aiming for the short-term wins but always have an end goal lurking that you know and feel you’re getting ever closer to, directly and indirectly. Things will work out ok.

This belief ironically perpetuates itself. One’s anxiety normally acts as a kind of counter-productive paralysis, whereas that freedom of faith encourages the purest kind of productivity – the stuff you really want to do and enjoy.
