Is legacy better measured by tangible accomplishment or lasting influence?
It's been two years since Steve Jobs passed away. He left us with both.
The commencement speech that Jobs delivered at Stanford University on June 12, 2005, remains one of the most inspiring speeches I can recall. It was short, personal, witty, funny and, beyond all, poignant. It was life advice, for "students" of all ages, wrapped in alluring storytelling.
Steve Jobs continues to inspire. It's worth re-listening to this speech once a year.
