아래 내용은 그 유명한 스티브 잡스의 스탠포드 졸업식 연설내용 전문입니다. 얼마전에 우연히 mp3로 들었는데, 정말 가슴에 와닿는 부분이 많더군요. 시간 나실때 찬찬히 읽어보시거나 연설을 직접들어 보실 수 있기를 바랍니다.

Stanford Report, June 14, 2005 'You've got to find what you love,' Jobs says

This is the text of the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on June 12, 2005.

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.

    몇번 들어보고 읽어봤습니다만.. 'connecting the dots'.... 인생은 랜덤이다.. 라고 말하는 것 같더군요. 그냥 뭐를 했었는데 나중에 와서보니 그때 했던게 큰 도움이 됐다.. 즉 자기가 예측 못했던 부분에서 도움을 받았다는건데..
    전 개인적으로 별 느낌 없더군요

    스티브잡스의 아이콘을 읽고 완전히 매료되었다가 이 연설을 보게 되었습니다..^^
    이상한 성격을 가진 사람이긴 하지만..
    저 상업성, 저 마인드 만큼은 닮고 싶더군요.^^

      저는 개인적으로 굉장히 존경합니다. 맥이라는 컴퓨터가 있었기에 윈도우즈가 이만큼 발전했다는 생각이 들고, 토이스토리를 좋아하는 아이들이 그가 없었다면 어떻게 되었을까 그런생각이 자주 듭니다. 아이팟이 물론 대단한 성공이고, 아이폰이 기다려집니다. 댓글 감사드립니다.
