Trapped by Dogma And Imprisoned By Bullshit Ideas

Here's another post from Seafield strand again this morning, with Es and the boys. This one is based around something I had heard from Steve Jobs, but hadn't realized the context, although I guessed at it as I was musing through the video. The quote was "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."

The full paragraph is from his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address is "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."

The context was not, as I said in the video, upon understanding that he was going to die. It was when his first bout of cancer was in the past. He said ""This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope it's the closest I get for a few more decades." He died 6 years later.

If you want a treatise on how short life is and how you should make the most of what you have, as well as how to part this mortal coil with grace and humour, have a read of "Tuesday's With Morrie" by Mitch Albom.

I hope enjoy this video where I talk about my view on limited time, being trapped by dogma, and being a slave to other people's thinking.
