This commencement speech by Steve Jobs will go down in infamy as one of the most inspiring true tales about how not to waste the short amount of time you have.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. 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. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
Get rich or die trying? Not quite according to Henry Ford: “Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.”
