The following months unfolding ahead of us will marks one of the biggest achievements academically for a large number of graduates. Whether high school or college – I’d like to congratulate everyone walking that aisle. I remember clearly the excitement, fear, anxiousness and all the unknowns going through my head. All the uncertainty at the time have now become a fear of the past, thanks to the commencement speech given by Steve Jobs at Stanford’s class of 2005 graduation. Although given years ago I find thing he says here are very relevant today. Moving forward after graduation I’d like you all to continue to think about these words given by Jobs:
“It was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college, but it was very- very clear looking back 10 years later. Again you can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future, you have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, karma whatever. Cause believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even if it leads you off the well worn path and that will make all the difference.
Congratulation AGAIN. Be optimistic and excited for the future.
