“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.”



“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs — Stanford Commencement Address, 2005

『あなたの時間は限られています。だから、他人の人生を生きて時を無駄にしないこと。ドグマの罠に陥らないようにすること。それは他人の思考の結果に従って生きることになります。他人の意見の雑音に、自らの内なる声の邪魔をさせないようにすること。そして最も大切なことは、己の心と直感に従う勇気を持つことです。それらはあなたが本当にそうなりたいことをどういうわけか既にもう知っているのです。そのほかのことはどうでもいいのです。』〜 2005年スタンフォード大学卒業式での演説


“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”

『あなたの仕事は、あなたの人生の大部分を占めることになるでしょう、そして真に満足するために、取るべき唯一の道は、あなた自身が偉大な仕事であると信じることをやることです。そして偉大な仕事をやる唯一の手段は、あなたがやろうとすることを好きになることです。もし、まだそれを見つけていないのなら、探し続けなさい。決して諦めて落ち着いてしまわないことです。』〜 2005年スタンフォード大学卒業式での演説


“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure—these things KyusuLGjust fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”—Stanford University Commencement Address, 2005

『自分はいずれは死んでしまう人間なのだと思うことが、私が人生において非常に重要な選択に迫られたとき最も重要な助けになります。なぜなら、殆ど全てのもの、例えば外部からの期待、全てのプライド、恥や失敗に対する恐れなど全てのものは死を前にしたとき、非常に重要なもののみを残してすべて雲散霧消、つまり跡形もなく消えてしまうからです。自分が死にゆく存在であると思い起こすことが、何かを失うのではないかと考える思考の罠を避ける最高の方法であると思います。あなたはとうの昔から裸なのです。だから、自分の心に従わない理由はどこにもありえないのです。』 2005年 スタンフォード大学卒業式での演説



“When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.”

This blog is my personal journal, thus was initially intended for myself. Whoever happens to come across my post is certainly welcomed to read it, though I'm unsure if it would inspire you. It does for me, as it's for me. I sometimes read back what I wrote and help motivate myself in my spiritual walk. I enjoy my everyday life. Blessed with many good quality friends and my great musical and artistic talents. I am naturally a happy smiley person, especially when I am surrounded by likeminded people whose value system is similar to mine. I also enjoy meeting new people who help me move out of my comfort zone to continually grow. I prefer people who are naturally honest and transparent with a sense of good integrity. I've been enjoying my life more and more especially for the past half year. Hope this season is bringing you lots of special and blessed moments filled with joy and many laughter. Thanks for visiting my new wordpress blog page today. Have a wonderful day! May God bless you. 😊🌅 - About 'Me'
