TED Talk: Live Before You Die

When I first watched this moving TED Talk by Steve Jobs in the fall of 2011, I didn’t know much about him.  I vaguely remembered that he was connected with Apple, but I hadn’t read the authorized biography by Walter Isaacson which reveals Jobs as a brilliant businessman with an exceptionally challenging personality.

Without any bias at all, I watched this June 2005 commencement speech given by Jobs at Stanford College, and was intrigued and inspired. He begins with the startling statement that he never graduated from college, and from there advises the graduates to follow their dreams, see setbacks as opportunities, and live before they die.

In hindsight, it seems he was an expert at doing just that.
