Steve Jobs – Pursue your Dreams

Written and accurate as at: 10 October 2009

Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself — at Stanford University’s 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005.

Steve Jobs reminds us that often what we want for others, is often not actually what they want for themselves.

He also reminds us of the brevity of life. That some day we all gradually become old, and will pass. He reminds us that we don’t know when that day will be, but that we can prepare for that day.

For example, from a financial perspective, you can ensure your life insurance is appropriate for your personal and family needs, and your Estate Planning needs have been taken care of.
