Now this is Brilliance...

Yesterday when I heard that Steve Jobs would be leaving his post at Apple, I thought about the brilliant impact that he has made on the world, in the way we communicate, in the way we consume technology. I have a tendency to write down a quote I find inspiring and carry it around with me in the back of my wallet. Steve Jobs wise words have been in the back of my wallet since 2005. He gave the commencement speech at Stanford University that year, I was out in San Fransisco at the time so after the speech lots of people were talking about his speech in Palo Alto. I scribbled this quote on a piece of paper...I have shared it here before, but it is worth repeating, " you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something- your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life ". The speech is about 15 minutes long but I promise you, it is worth the time spent...
