Gaining Perspective When Experiencing Difficult Times

Sometimes things you really care about in life don't work out as planned, even when those things are special, world-class, and deserve only the best.

It hurts like hell when something like that happens. And when it does, it is hard to keep perspective.

Steve Jobs gave an amazingly insightful speech last June at the Stanford University commencement that talked about perspective. Video is here.

When I first started this posting, I tried to excerpt key parts of the speech. But there are so many good parts to the speech that I can only simply encourage all of you to read the whole speech.
