June 14, 2005 ‘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.
I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.
It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: “We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?” They said: “Of course.” My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.

No tenía dormitorio, así que dormía en el suelo de las habitaciones de mis amigos, devolvía botellas de Coca Cola por los 5 céntimos del envase para conseguir dinero para comer, y caminaba más de 10 Km los domingos por la noche para comer bien una vez por semana en el templo de los Hare Krishna.
En aquella época la Universidad de Reed ofrecía la que quizá fuese la mejor formación en caligrafía del país. En todas partes del campus, todos los póster, todas las etiquetas de todos los cajones, estaban bellamente caligrafiadas a mano.
Lo diré otra vez: no puedes conectar los puntos hacia adelante, sólo puedes hacerlo hacia atrás. Así que tenéis que confiar en que los puntos se conectarán alguna vez en el futuro. Tienes que confiar en algo, tu instinto, el destino, la vida, el karma, lo que sea.
Realmente no supe qué hacer durante algunos meses. Sentía que había dado de lado a la anterior generación de emprendedores, que había soltado el testigo en el momento en que me lo pasaban. Me reuní con David Packard [de HP] y Bob Noyce [Intel], e intenté disculparme por haberlo fastidiado tanto. Fue un fracaso muy notorio, e incluso pensé en huir del valle [Silicon Valley].
