スティーブ・ジョブズ氏

2011/10/08
Apple創始者スティーブ・ジョブズ氏が亡くなられ、話題になっている、
2005年のスタンフォード大学卒業式で行われたスピーチ。



大学のホームページに原文が掲載されていたので、
印象に残ったところを抜粋。

'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.'

'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.'

'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.

抜粋だとインパクトにやや欠けますが、
全体を通して聞くと、非常に重みがあります。

Windows95発売時、明らかにMacの真似だと思いました。
今では当たり前のフォルダとか。
正確なことは分かりませんが。

Apple社の
'Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were
the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives.
The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.'
という声明に共感を覚えます。
