Jobs helped us connect the dots

October 5, 2011 - Art Smith

A friend that I have never met has died.

Steve Jobs, the creator of all that is cool, is dead.

The co-founder of Apple died of cancer. His innovations help change the way we interact with technology through computers, phones, music and even movies.

A college dropout, he spent his life defining and refining devices on which we would consume and create a wide variety of media.

I have personally been using Apple products since 1982, so to say that his creations have an impact on my life is a little bit of an understatement.

Jobs rarely spoke about himself. In 2005 though, he gave one of the most moving speeches I have ever heard. During the only graduation speech he ever gave he told the graduating class at Stanford three stories of his life.

They are all great lessons. Take a few minutes now and listen to them. can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them 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. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life... - Steve Jobs
