Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

A friend sent me this video and as I was watching it, I felt it applied equally well to all of us who are considering or embarking on an early retirement. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

It's a good one. I think it was published in several mags at the time. I kept it and provided copies to several of my subordinates at the time who had HS age kids.
