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

This is a prepared text of the Commencement address delivered by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, on June 12, 2005.

........ Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

It is a profound truth and too often overlooked in our lives.

But it's getting harder to take his advice. Kids are now being told not to bother with liberal arts schooling - they should instead be engineers because "You can't eat a History degree." And there's a lot of truth to that because it's really hard to start up an insanely great business in your garage, and it's getting harder.

I look forward to the day when we do a better job - if we ever do - of steering our kids to occupations that feed them personally and professionally. We in the U.S. are pretty much relying on the free market's chaos theory of labor economics, or the caste system that's emerging - college is becoming a pipe dream for too many undiscovered talents.

Talent - that's a word I hate to hear used by people like my otherwise esteemed instructor, who insisted there's a looming talent shortage. Indeed, he believes he's seeing that now because there are an estimated three million jobs going begging for the "talent" that never seems to show up. But that's not talent - that's skill, and skills are built, not come upon by chance.

So Steve Jobs will continue to be the superstar. RIP Steve, we will miss you but I regret to notice your nemesis, Bill Gates, is the one who is the one who is throwing his considerable wealth into developing talent so maybe we'll come up with someone to follow in your footsteps, if not replace you.
