MOTIVATION – STAY HUNGRY. STAY FOOLISH. [FINAL PART 7]

MOTIVATION – STAY HUNGRY. STAY FOOLISH. [FINAL PART 7]


yeah stay hungry stay foolish every morning you wake up there are two
doors and there are thundering knocks at each one of them behind one lies your destiny and living behind the other lies death living is engaging your life with
intensity and passion once you get through all the pages and
all the rules and all the principles and all the formats and all the plans and
all the templates comes down to that do the fucking work start today I don’t care when your life clock started
ticking start fucking right now. Today by 6:16 you can change your fucking perspective of the world and of your life my advice fucking do it dig fucking deep and get it done do the workof your 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 no matter what anybody tells you words and ideas can change the world 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 I stand up on my desk to remind myself
that we must constantly look at things in a different way just when you think you know something
you have to look at it in another way even though it may seem silly or wrong you must try boys you must strive to find your own
voice because the longer you wait to begin the less likely you are finding it all Thoreau said most men lead lives of quiet
desperation don’t be resined to that breakout I suddenly had this kind of thing wash
over me where I thought imagine chasing that and not getting it and getting it
finally in you’re 80’s or your 90’s with all of life behind you and
realizing what an unbelievable waste of your it can’t fill you up it will never if
that’s a hole that you have that won’t fill it I imagined another one of me you know an old man
kind of going like oh my God where did my life go what have I done 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 and Calla graft 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 sans 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 10 years later when we were designing the
first macintosh computer in all came back 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 are proportionally spaced fonts if I had never dropped out I would have
never dropped in on that 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 and if you don’t bring your idea here
when you die all of us will suffer because we’ve been deprived of your
genius because you allowed but to keep you in the bleachers of not pursuing
your greatness you take it to your grave with you I was lucky I found what I love to do early in life
waz (wozniak) and i started apple in my parent’s garage when I was 20 we worked hard and in 10 years Apple
grown from just the two of us in the garage into a two billion dollar company
with over 4,000 employees go confidently in the direction of your
dreams and live the life that you’ve imagined if you can’t summon up the energy the
excitement the enthusiasm for something your life every day is going to be a drag to wake up to when you crawl out from underneath the covers every morning and you sit on the edge of the bed you have a choice before you decide
whatever you want to do that you are now going to become actively involved right
now exploring the possibilities for you that you’re going to look at it and do
just a little bit of it right now decide decide to do it now there’s no guarantees you are going to
show up tomorrow there are a lot of people who were here yesterday
that they’re not here today there are a lot of opportunities that were around
yesterday they’re not here today oh you can wait but you know what abraham lincoln said well good things might come to those who wait but only the
things that have been left over by those who hustled when I was young there was an amazing
publication called the whole earth catalog which was one of the Bible’s 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 this
poetic touch this was in the late sixties 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 overflowing with neat
tools and great notions Stuart and his team put out several
issues of the whole earth catalog and then when it run its course they put out
a final issue it was the mid-nineteen seventies 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 Subtitles by the Amara.org community
