I was lucky I found what I loved to do

early in life woz and I started Apple in

my parent's garage when I was 20 we

worked hard and in 10 years Apple had

grown from just the two of us in a

garage into a two billion dollar company

with over 4,000 employees we just

released our finest creation the

Macintosh a year earlier and I just

turned 30 and then I got fired

how can you get fired from a company you

started what had been the focus of my

entire adult life was gone and it was

devastating I really didn't know what to

do for a few months I felt that I'd let

the previous generation of entrepreneurs

down I was a very public failure and I

even thought about running away from the

valley but something slowly began to

dawn on me I still loved what I did

[Music]

we are gonna make it or break it based

on whether we can provide products to

higher education and services and

relationships to higher education that

no one else provides and I think we

ought to spend a hundred percent of our

time thinking about that and if we can't

do that then we ought to go broke and so

I decided to start over I didn't see it

then but it turned out that getting

fired from Apple was the best thing that

could have ever happened to me the

heaviness of being successful was

replaced by the lightness of being a

beginner again less sure about

everything it freed me to enter one of

the most creative periods in my life

during the next five years I started a

company named next another company named

Pixar and fell in love with an amazing

woman who would become my wife I'm

pretty sure none of this would have

happened if I hadn't been fired from

Apple

it was awful tasting medicine but I

guess the patient needed it sometimes

life's gonna hit you in the head with a

brick don't lose faith I'm convinced

that the only thing that kept me going

was that I loved what I did you've got

to find what you love and that is as

true for work as it is for your lovers

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

and don't settle so keep looking don't

settle

[Music]

you
