'You've got to find what you love,' Jobs says

I'm not really sure what is this, I got it from Mr. Budi Rahardjo's blog. If I'm not misinterpreted it, it is Steve Jobs(The CEO of Apple Corp) on Stanford University, nice and enlightening. he told about three most important things in his life. The first is about Connecting the dots, he said that we can't connect the dot of our life forward but we just can do it backward.

The second one is about love and loss where he share his part of life when he get fired from a company which he started, yes you're right, Apple Corp. and the last one is about death. a quote from his speech :
"Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle."
