Today I was preparing one of the live chat sessions I do in my online biology class. Part of it was to clarify an assignment, basically a research project on a topic, and I was stressing the importance of being focused and keeping it deep but simple.
I googled “Steve Jobs quotes” to find the exact wording of the “Simple can be harder than complex” quote. Found a number of other quotes and could not resist reading them.
This thought expresses so much nicer what I tried to say in yesterday’s posting:
“Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
That commencement speech was indeed so special.
