Steve Jobs On Connecting The Dots

Like most people, I was saddened, but not shocked today when I got the news that Steve Jobs, one of the greatest creative minds of our time, passed away. He was, in my opinion, the closest thing we had to Leonardo DaVinci in the modern era.

That's one hell of an accomplishment for a little boy who was was put up for adoption, rejected by his first adopted laywer family who wanted a girl, and then accepted by a family where the mother never graduated from college, and the father never graduated from high school. Maybe that's why Steve did not see how college would benefit him. So he dropped out, and that's when he said the dots began to connect for him.

Steve had this to say about connecting the dots in your life:

" can't connect the dots looking can only connect them looking you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference..."
