Words I Need To Read Every Day
Came across the Steve Jobs commencement speech via ROFASix. I needed this one.
(about being fired from Apple) "...I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle."

El Capitan, thanks for posting this. I needed to read something like this especially since I need to make critical decisions in choosing what I decide to do once I go into the guard.
It's always good to come across things that confirm what you already know to be true.
