I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.

I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?

It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.

And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents' savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn't interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.

It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:

Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating.

None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, it's likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.

Again, 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.

My second story is about love and loss.

I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.

I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down - that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple's current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.

I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

My third story is about death.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. 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.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I'm fine now.

This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope it's the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960's, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.

Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

Thank you all very much.

    For more information you can visit my website How To Stop Stuttering

    I hope you have found this article helpful, and have a better idea of the treatments for stuttering. In my opinion, the best treatment is through the self help approach. I was actually able to cure my stuttering in 9 minutes, by following simple yet effective techniques found in a video at MyStutterCure.Com this is the most realistic and practical method I have found on how to stop stuttering.

    The "stuttering annihilation technique" I learned addresses stuttering at the root of the problem, which is something I never learned in all the therapy sessions I paid for in the past.

    If you have decided to go with any of the three treatments for stuttering I have talked about in this article, I highly suggest taking a few minutes of your time and checking out the website MyStutterCure.Com first. It could save you thousands of dollars on therapy sessions or having to purchase an expensive stuttering device.

    Over 3% of the American population has a stuttering problem http://www.uggoutletboot.com/ugg-outlet/ugg-outlet-5803-bailey-button-boots-red.Html ugg outlet 5803 Red. If you tend to stutter, it is important to realize that you are not alone. Stuttering is a treatable speech impairment, and you should not feel that there is no hope or that there is nothing that you can do about it. If my personal story can help you feel some reassurance, I stuttered severely throughout most of my life. However, I never gave up on trying to improve my fluency and was eventually able to learn how to stop stuttering. I am going to explain and help you become familiar with some of the treatments for stuttering available to you.

    By the time you finish reading this article http://discountbootonline.com/women/ Womens UGG boots sale, you will have a better idea of what your options are for treatments and hopefully will be able to decide what option is right for you.

    (updated: 10:02 p, http://www.officialravenshop.com/ray-lewis-jersey-c-131.html Ray Lewis Black Jersey.m.)

    Both Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy remain in jeopardy of missing Monday night's game against Carolina at Lincoln Financial Field. Both are still in phase 1 of their recoveries from concussions and did not practice Wednesday.

    (If you have either on your fantasy team, go get a backup.)

    After Wednesday morning's walk-through, head coach Andy Reid said Vick is "working his way into phase 2," which involves exercise to elevate the heart rate. Vick watched practice and attended a meeting but has yet to work out.

    "He hasn't gotten into phase 2 yet," Reid said. "He's touched on it a bit by going to a meeting today and being able to come out here where there's light. But he hasn't worked out. That's part of the phase 2. He's in phase 1."

    Vick, who suffered his concussion Nov. 11 against Dallas, has not taken another ImPACT test since Monday, when Reid said Vick had yet to return to baseline, a level set before the season.

    Once Vick passes the phase 2 tests, he would need to be cleared by both an NFL-mandated neurologist and the team's physician before returning to practice.

    If Vick cannot play Monday night, rookie Nick Foles will again start.

    McCoy left Sunday's loss to the Redskins after a helmet-to-helmet collision late in the fourth quarter. Reid said McCoy is still experiencing headaches.

    If McCoy can't play, rookie Bryce Brown will start at running back and share carries with Dion Lewis. Rookie running back Chris Polk (toe sprain) did not Wednesday and, according to Reid, probably will not play.

    Elsewhere, receivers Jason Avant (hamstring strain) and Riley Cooper (knee inflammation), and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (foot/ankle sprain) did not practice.

  16. A lot is written about what to do after losing a job, but what about the people who don't lose their jobs, but are faced with the results of business slowdowns - layoffs, reduced expectations, salary freezes, greater responsibility with fewer resources and the uncertainty of what's next?

    In every economic downturn and resulting workforce reduction, the internal dynamics of organizations change. Everything takes on more importance - every behavior, mistake, judgment, comment gains importance way out of proportion to its value. Contrasts become much sharper. The meetings get longer - the demands get sharper - the expectations higher - the disappointments felt more deeply, and the blame game swings into action. It shouldn't be that way, but in most companies - even the best managed - workforce reductions brings home the feeling that it could happen to me. When that happens, survival trumps opportunity, safety trumps optimism, and a sense of humor has to be muted -unless the person with that sense of humor be seen as not serious - as not a player.

    For many people in todays workforce, the depth and severity of this downturn is outside their experience. So they ask if it's time to slam the hatch shut and hunker down and wait it out, or go out and look for a job, or start a business. What other alternatives are there? What can be done to not just survive http://www.christmasbootsale.com/uggs-boots-classic-short-sparkles-blue-christmas-sale.Html UGGS Boots Classic Short Sparkles Blue Christmas Sale, but prosper in a downturn?

    Plenty - in behaviors, attitudes and personal growth. That may not seem obvious, but the choice of how to deal with a temporary setback is a personal one. And the effect of using this stressful time as the time to develop personally and professionally adds value throughout a career.

    Here are ten success behaviors that can make the difference between losing, just surviving or succeeding in economic downturns http://www.bootsoutlett.com Ugg Shoes 5131 Black outlet.

    1 - Do the work - every day. Downturns often lead to people spending way too much time on conjecture and surmise. Avoid those people - and make sure your own behavior doesn't become counter productive. I have a friend who has a saying framed and placed right where everyone can see it. It says " Don't let the bastards wear you down."

    2 - Start by valuing what you have and stop wasting time mourning the loss of what was. And recognize that the boss may have had to fight hard to keep you, and now is not the time to complain about pay, assignments, or all the other issues that people reductions create http://furuggscheap.com/uggs-boots/deep-pink-ugg-boots-classic-short-5825-cheap.Html Deep Pink UGG Boots Classic Short 5825 Cheap. Make sure any and all conversations are positive and understood in the way they were meant to be understood. It's easy in these times of bad news for one person's suggestion to be seen as a complaint http://www.sheepskinbootsoutlet.com/ugg-shoes/ugg-sandals UGG Sandals.

    3 - Keep your eyes open, your ears tuned, and your mouth shut. Deal with what is - not what you might think it is, or what motive you think was behind decisions.. Your opinions and judgments are probably (90%) wrong anyway - so why waste time on them?

    4 - Help a friend that lost their job. Giving and showing concern means a lot to them and even more to you. Acting without regard to getting is tremendously liberating, and the rewards for it may be in a lifelong friendship and other rewards that can't even be imagined at this time.

    5 - Update your resume. Chances are that it hasn't been touched since the last time you changed jobs. Be impressed by how far you have come from a value, skills and contribution basis. If you're not impressed with your increase in value, skills and contribution, get in gear and grow!

    6 - Seek self development. Even in the worst of downturns, the opportunities to grow your skills is available. An example: Don't like to speak in public http://www.cheapkidsboot.com/uggs-bailey-button-triplet-c-31.html Chocolate Bailey Button Triplet uggs? Join Toastmasters - do it on your own time. It isn't expensive and it will increase value faster than almost anything else you can do. Same goes for working in volunteer organizations - the personal skills that can be gained from working in non profits and volunteer groups have tremendous carryover value to work. Reach out to do something you have never done and never thought to do. It's stimulating. Be sure to stay current on the trade publications for your industry and/or your areas of expertise.

    7 - Be a problem solver. Ever notice how many people are always ready to identify a problem, but seem to disappear when the talk turns to solutions? The problem identifiers seem to come out of the woodwork during downturns, but the problem solvers are the ones who grow - and they are a scarce commodity. And being a valued scarce commodity in a downturn - or anytime - is definitely career advancing.

    8 - Inventory what you're good at - what others say you are good at - as well as what you feel are your strengths. Then build on those strengths. In downturns it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking in terms of scarcity - of what you don't have. All that does is lead to negative thoughts about self worth and ability.

    9 - Stay in touch with people who you see as successful and centers of influence - at work and in your personal life. Learn from them - become a center of influence yourself. Read Harvey Mackay's book "Dig The Well Before You're Thirsty" on the importance of building relationships - and doing it every day, not just when all hell is breaking loose.

    10 - Seek out things that provide motivation and inspiration. I have a friend who listens to bagpipe music on the way to work every morning - says it pumps him up - gets him ready to hit the ground running. Avoid people and programs and situations that provoke anger and negative emotions.

    Come to think of it, these ten behaviors are valuable all the time, not just in a downturn. But they do take on added importance when times are tough. Take the time - right now - to see which of these success behaviors have value for you - and which ones need some work on your part. And then make this challenging time a time of personal growth. It will prepare you for the good times that are just around the corner.

  20. Almost everyone wonders about what their life will become. It is only natural to wonder what course your life will take. Unfortunately, this type of thinking is often what causes so many individuals to end up in a state of heartache and disappointment. People tend to believe that there something else controlling the outcome of their lives, rather than themselves. In the comprehensive program, Secrets to Manifesting Your Destiny by Wayne Dyer, you learn that it is you who is in control of how your life turns out http://www.clearancebootsworld.com/ ugg classic tall boots clearance.

    Allowing your circumstances to control you and overcome your entire state of being is not healthy. If you allow something else to steer your direction in life, you'll end up on the wrong course and find yourself somewhere you don't want to be. Some people think that they would have ended up where they are no matter what may have happened, but the truth is, if you knew how to take control of your life, you'll end up exactly where you want to be http://www.officialbootsale.net/ugg-suburb-crochet-boots-grey.Html UGG Suburb Crochet Boots Grey.

    In the program, Secrets to Manifesting Your Destiny by Wayne Dyer, you find out that happiness is a state of mind, as well as an extremely possible reality http://www.clearancebootsworld.com/ ugg short black boots. If you want to take control of your life, you must develop a desire to succeed http://www.bootsoutlett.com Ugg Boots 5815 Deep Red outlet. You must also have the drive and determination to carry out your goals. There are far too many people who simply go through life, living by the rules of others, never really carrying out their dreams and desires.

    Individuals who merely dream of a happier reality will never obtain it unless they come up with a course of action. Unfortunately, unless you know what course of action to take, you're probably going to end up like every other unhappy individual on the planet.

    The Secrets to Manifesting Your Destiny opens your eyes to the fact that you can literally have whatever it is you want in life. Everything from wonderful relationships to money and riches can be yours if you understand how to obtain it.

    It takes a certain kind of mindset to achieve the goals you want in life. Most people have a negative state of mind that prevents them from being truly happy. Breaking free from your usual thinking patterns is part of the secrets to manifesting your destiny. Unleashing the power that lies within you and recognizing your hidden potential is one of the main ways to obtain the things you want in life.

    Most people have tons of concerns in their lives. At any given moment, people are worried to death about money, relationships, and their health. All the time spent worrying about both significant and insignificant details takes away from the quality of life. Worrying doesn't solve anything. Instead, it creates stress and takes years away from your existence. It decreases the time you have left to spend with your family.

    When you understand the Secrets to Manifesting Your Destiny and how it can help you to lead a happier life, there will be no more cause for worry or concern. Having a clear mind and knowing what direction to take creates a state of mental peace that cannot be compared to anything else http://www.bootoutletstore.net/ugg-boots/ugg-jimmy-choo-3042-boots-clearance-mandah-black.Html jimmy choo 3042.
