The first story is about connecting the dots.

I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out? for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?

It wasn’t all romantic. I didn’t have It wasn’t all romantic. I didn’t have a dorm room , so I slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, I returned Coke bottles for the 5 ¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the seven miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it.

Because I had dropped out and didn’t have to take the normal classes , I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this.

None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But 10 years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me.

The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

My third story is about death.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: «If you live each day as if it was your last, some day you’ll most certainly be right.» It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: «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. svako jutro i pitao se: «Ako danas su bili posljednji dan u mom životu, da želim da uradim ono što sam o tome da radimo danas?» I kad god je odgovor je «ne me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: «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. znam da je potrebno da se nešto promijeni.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death , leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know , leaving only what is truly important.
