Ounce of Inspiration

Steve Jobs' message for the 2005 graduates of Stanford University left me thinking, 'is this really what I wanted?'
The following are just some of the lines in his speech that I like the most:

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

"Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith."

"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. "

"If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

"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."

"Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish."

For inspiration, I read my journals (I've been keeping journals since I was 11 years old). Two of them which were written when I was in high school talked about competition, my first love, and it showed my passion for writing and arts.  

Right now, I'm thinking of pursuing what I want, that is, to become an entrepreneur/designer. It's a tough job but I know I can make it.
