I just re-watched Steve Jobs wonderful speech at Stanford University in 2005 (below).
What is particularly interesting is Steve’s reference to ‘connecting the dots’ in life. We can’t connect the dots forward, they can only be connected looking backward on events. It was ten years AFTER dropping out of College that he discovered why dropping out turned out to be the catalyst for the radical change in home computing. And, it was only ten years after being sacked from Apple, that he was able to look back and see that it was the best thing that could have happened to him.
The secret he reveals is having faith, confidence in the future…Destiny, God, Karma, call it what you will, that the dots will, at some point, connect. This is one of the secrets to finding the Flipside in life.
Watch and enjoy, the great Mr Steve Jobs…
