Life is made of innumerable dots. Dots, which are part of your today life, will connect with tomorrow dots.
All these dots are invisible. It takes time to connect the past with future and vice versa. Steve jobs life was a sum of misfortune and fortune. His biological mother, an unwed graduate gave him to a lovable parent, who brought him up. When he went to college, he realized that he was not very much interested in study. He felt guilty of spending his parent’s hard earned money. He finally left the graduation.
For next 18 month he hanged around the college. He slept on floor in his friend’s room. He uses to walk 5 to 6 miles on Sunday to reach a Harey Krisna temple for his best dinner of the week. It is never visible, how life was connecting his life for coming future. He learned design and music. He was not sure where it will lead him in life.
But his canny for sophisticated design was very much visible in his product at Apple, the Macintosh. He founded Apple computers with Woz and in 10 years of operation, made it a $2 billion company. But then Apple board fired him. It was a real blow to Steve. The body, which loved most, was snatched from him.
Steve was very unsure what to do after this. He was a public failure. He wanted to run away from Silicon Valley. But his love for his kept his inner core burning. He started out again with a company named Next, and another one Pixar. The course, at graduation in design helped him a lot here. Finally Apple bought Next and Pixar. Steve became the CEO of Apple again.
All the dot of this story was interconnected and woven by destiny. It could have been a frustrating journey. But in words of Steve, “sometime life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t loose faith. I am convinced that only thing that kept me going was my love for what I did. Your work is going to fill a large part of day and you can be satisfied only when you believe in your work and love it. If you have not found your love keep looking for it.”
