There Are Few Accidents, Few True Failures (In The Big Picture)

In ! Jen, Play on Saturday, April 3, 2010 at 3:33 am

On this day of iPad’s release, here’s homage to a true visionary. Steve Jobs gave the commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005 and it’s worth the 15 minutes when you need a jolt of graduation speech inspiration.

I love stories where perseverance through failures leads to unconventional brilliance. “You cannot connect the dots moving forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.”

May we all work for organizations, work for people, who allow us the space and time to connect the dots.
