Steve told the graduates that remembering you’ll be dead soon helped him make big choices. Finally Steve tells us to not waste our time living someone else’s life and live ours, embrace what we love to do. Steve jobs is mainly aiming his speech at young adults and his tone is inspirational by telling us how he had nothing and became something.
Steve Jobs, in his speech , ¨You've got to find what you love¨, implies that we have a limited time to live, so don't waste it living in dogma. He supports his claim by telling four stories of his experiences. The first story being about connecting the dots in (his) life. Then in the second story, he speaks about love and loss of his passion. In the third story he brings up death, and how it kept him motivated to do what he loves.
Steve Jobs’ assertion, “ Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart,” is valid because by remembering that in the end, we will all die. We should not contain our way of thinking and how we want to live life. By remembering that life is short, our minds will begin to think differently and perceive life differently.
It is a good word to remember, because it’s a word that changes our lives forever for those who love Jesus. On Day 6 we talked about how to ask Jesus to live in your heart. If you have never done that before, and you would like to now, or if you don’t know how to do that, we have a simple prayer you might like to say in the back of this book, that will help you do that. It is a small prayer, but it will bring big changes to your life, because Jesus will come into your life and become your Saviour.
Just three stories.” Through a simple start and the use of trigger words Steve Jobs, managed to keep the audience focused during the whole speech and interested to find out what comes next. Steve Jobs by using the important technique of storytelling he touched the heart of his audience. Through the simplicity of his language, the
He can’t just hope to “succeed by chance”; he needs to succeed by choice. He needs to schedule out a specific time that he can just sit down and study or research. He has to take the time to really read and comprehend what he’s supposed to be learning that way when it comes to writing an essay he’ll have much more to say and be able to write something of
Steve Jobs said “After six months, I couldn’t see the value in it”, but six months really isn’t enough time to have it all figured out. He also said he had no idea what he wanted to do with his life and no idea how college was going to help him figure it out. I really admire his courage, and I also
He uses rhetorical questions like “Want to see that again?” or “Pretty cool, huh?” In order to engage the audience What Steve Jobs wants is not an answer to these rhetorical questions but to incite thought and understanding of the audience, by playing with their emotions. I’ve noticed that he uses the repetition of words to cause a dramatic effect, for example, “We are gonna use the best pointing device in the world” and “We are gonna use a pointing device we are all born with” etc. Furthermore, in a point of the presentation he begins a lot of phrases with the same word. In this case “Watch…, they become….” like “Watch your thoughts, they become words” etc. He also repeats words at the end of phrases, “the people” etc.
If Steve Jobs would have depended on his luck he would have not earned his fame and reputation like he had. Steve Jobs earned his fame because he worked hard. He didn’t have a dorm room, so he slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, he returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and he would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. This is what a leader needs; hard work. The concept I like is that “the real role of the leader is to figure out how you make diverse people and elements work together (p.100).
All you must do is repent of your sins and accept him into your life. No matter what you are going through, he will help you. I would like to invite you to get to know him by inviting you to my church and for lunch. Remember, Jesus is the way and he is our savior. Jesus loves and cares about you and I care about you too.
