It was exactly a year ago today that I heard the commencement speech that Steve Jobs gave to Stanford in 2005. I heard the words above and something clicked. Something inside me brightened. I saw that he was absolutely correct. How happy could you be living the ideals of someone else? How could you feel at peace with yourself knowing that it’s not you that’s directing your own life?
It was that day, that epiphany, those words, that put me where I am today.
