Last Thursday, SAS 8th grade students listened to Steve Job's 2005 Stanford Commencement Address. Here are a few of his notions that they commented upon. What do you think of his advice?
• Don’t underestimate the “lightness of being a beginner again.”
• “You are already naked, there is no reason not to follow your heart.”
• “Don’t let the noise of others drown your opinion.”
• “Doing what you believe is great work.”
• “Keep looking, don’t settle.”
• “Stay hungry, stay foolish.”
Mr. Jobs suggested that we “can’t connect the dots looking forward.”
How can a school help its members identify and cultivate their “dots” without the gift of hindsight?
