Assignment #6 Steve Jobs’ Talk

Steve Jobs, one of the most famous entrepreneurs in the world. The youth who in the college step may have lose themselves. But rethinking, we should do what we wanna do. If we do something that we don't like at all, maybe this is a kind of torture. Although we find something we interested in, we must deeply study this field and be an expert. 

The chance will stand by somebody who is well-prepared. This is the same with Jobs because he didn't know the course he take will use in the future. So, I really agree that. Take the most simplest thing for example, college entrance examination. My high school teacher once taught me if you didn't have any idea what you want to do or learn in the future, just studied. When you finish the exam, at least you have a choice to choose a department not a school choose you. Finally, we can smoothly enter the college that we really want. 

No one could escape from death. "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." Be curious in everything, be passionate in novelty industry. We will have more and more thought to let the world be better.

Good sentences from the talks

"If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts."

"Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward ; you can only connect them looking backwards."

"If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right."
