‘You’ve got to find what you love.’

This speech by Steve Jobs greatly inspires me. It makes me feel confident about the thing that I love: my decision to prefer the roller-coaster ride of a startup to the pretended securities of a corporate career. This is a great, personal story about connecting the dots, love and loss, and death.

“You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.”

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

“Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
