Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

"Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish" so said Steve Jobs of Apple Computer while closing his speech at the Commencement address at Stanford University on June 12 2005. A wise advice for most of us who are already satisfied with life. In the speech, he related the story of him and the company he founded. How he was kicked out of his own company and how he got back in. He also said that all the things that happened, however small it is, may have a bigger significance in the future. Its all just happened and it is up to us to use our faculty of reason to make sense of it. Maybe not immediately. Maybe not in a month.

The speech given by Steve Jobs talks about doing the thing we like to do. Steve is a college dropout but he never stopped learning. When he dropped out, he took that chance to learn something that he like to do. Maybe this is what we need. We need to do something that we like and love to do. Therefore we will do it well and excel in it. We should also continue learning. Schools and colleges are not the only place to learn.

From now on, I wish to try to learn something new and share it here.

To quantify "every" is sum of vast number unmeasured, especially for the inhabitants of 3rd rock from the sun.

To quantify "successful" is another great problem.
