By Luis Manuel Aguana Admire the speech of Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, Stanford University long before his unfortunate loss. Admired him not only by simple and profound message but by how incredibly human, coming from someone who may be a computer technician, but extraordinary. The speech lasted for about 15 minutes but was so full of wisdom that those minutes were like gold dust for who passes through life trying to do something and transcend. The past, the present and the future are intertwined in the three stories that described a masterfully. But the story that I’m more powerfully the attention was the first because I think it has to do a lot with us in these very eventful times, when we think that everything will fall and will be shredded, presaging a gloomy future for all of us. Steve called it connecting the dots. In the story Steve tells that nobody can know that the things that one does make sense until you connect the points. And which are the points? Milestones, the events in the life of a person, the things you do.
Points are formed with the story but nobody can know the drawing that will make until they exist, and therefore you do not see the picture but connecting the dots backwards. No one can see the image of points that have not occurred. Consequently you fervently believe that what you do will have an image that will have a sense in your future and work for it. Do what you have to do with the fervent desire of that will mean something to your future and live it fully. Visit Pete Cashmore for more clarity on the issue. Steve could not know when told that at Stanford that what was saying, not only to individuals but also to companies, applied to entire countries.
