Don’t Settle – The Life of Steve Jobs

Monday, August 10th, 2015

Lately, I keep looking for something to inspire me to do what I have to do before I start destroying my plans. So, out of nowhere, I found the infographic of the late Steve Job. I have planned to read his biography since last year, but as usual, I am procrastinating. Anyways, here you go, thanks to this article for sharing.

Wait, the infographic is not actually the one that inspire me right now. But there is a passage from his biography that quoted by the reference I use. In 2005, Steve gave speech during the graduation ceremony at Stanford University, he said: “You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don’t settle.

I hope you feel inspire too. After this, I will try to read his book as soon as possible. I have been too long thinking about useless stuff lately. Adiosss!!!!
