Curiosity & Intuition "Turned Out To Be Priceless Later On"
If you didn't see this grad speech by Steve Jobs the first time around, it is an amazing view (regardless how you feel about him), addressing multiple life challenges such as finding your road, being fired, re-invention and what's-it's-all-about, Alfie?
We thought we knew him, but this was a different side.
What hit us between the eyes was his revelation about taking this particular course just because it was just really important and well-done by the college he was attending:
Intrigued yet? So, the next time you may hear that Art is a non-essential - let them in on Jobs' speech --- Apple and Pixar founder Steve Jobs' 2005 commencement at Stanford (a year after his pancreatic cancer diagnosis). You may be surprised by his background (no more clues). He shares three very personal and powerful stories about the major events in his life. Even with a completely different economic outlook for college grads, his main points still resonate, maybe even more than ever.

P.S. Our all-time #1 favorite commencement ("real tears") was given by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling at Harvard.
We highly recommend this one - great to view with your kids, too.
