  • Thank you. I'm honored to be with you today for your commencement from one of the finest


  • universities in the world. Truth be told, I never graduated from college and this is


  • the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation.


  • Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three


  • stories. The first story is about connecting the dots.


  • I dropped out of Reed College after the first six months but then stayed around as a drop-in


  • for another eighteen months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out? It started


  • before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed graduate student, and she decided


  • to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates,


  • so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife, except


  • that when I popped out, they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl.


  • So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking,


  • "We've got an unexpected baby boy. Do you want him?" They said, "Of course." My biological

    "We've got an unexpected baby boy.Do you want him?Do you want him? " They said, "Of course." My biological

  • mother found out later that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father


  • had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers.


  • She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would go to college.


  • This was the start in my life. And seventeen years later, I did go to college, but I naively


  • chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents'


  • savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn't see the value


  • in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and no idea of how college was going

    その中で自分の人生で何をしたいのかもわからなかったし 大学の様子もわかりませんでした

  • to help me figure it out, and here I was, spending all the money my parents had saved

    両親が貯めていたお金を 使っていました

  • their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It

    彼らの人生の全てをだから私は中退することにしました そして全てがうまくいくと信じていますそれは

  • was pretty scary at the time, but looking back, it was one of the best decisions I ever

    当時はかなり怖かったが 振り返ってみると 最高の決断の一つだった

  • made. The minute I dropped out, I could stop taking the required classes that didn't interest


  • me and begin dropping in on the ones that looked far more interesting.


  • It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends'


  • rooms. I returned Coke bottles for the five-cent deposits to buy food with, and I would walk

    の部屋に行きました。5セントの預金で食料を買うために コーラの瓶を返した 私は歩くだろう

  • the seven miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna


  • temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition


  • turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example.


  • Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country.


  • Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer was beautifully hand-calligraphed.


  • Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take


  • a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and sans-serif typefaces,


  • about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what


  • makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that


  • science can't capture, and I found it fascinating.


  • None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later


  • when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me, and we designed


  • it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never

    それをすべてMacに落とし込んだのが美しいタイポグラフィを備えた 最初のコンピュータでしたもし私が

  • dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces


  • or proportionally spaced fonts, and since Windows just copied the Mac, it's likely that


  • no personal computer would have them.


  • If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on that calligraphy class and personals


  • computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do.


  • Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college,


  • but it was very, very clear looking backwards 10 years later. Again, you can't connect the


  • dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backwards, so you have to trust


  • that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something--your

    点と点が何らかの形で あなたの未来に繋がると思っていますあなたは何かを信頼しなければならない--あなたの

  • gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever--because believing that the dots will connect down


  • the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the


  • well-worn path, and that will make all the difference.


  • My second story is about love and loss. I was lucky. I found what I loved to do early


  • in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents' garage when I was twenty. We worked hard and


  • in ten years, Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company


  • with over 4,000 employees. We'd just released our finest creation, the Macintosh, a year


  • earlier, and I'd just turned thirty, and then I got fired. How can you get fired from a

    30歳になったばかりなのに クビになってしまったのですからクビになるなんて

  • company you started? Well, as Apple grew, we hired someone who I thought was very talented


  • to run the company with me, and for the first year or so, things went well. But then our


  • visions of the future began to diverge, and eventually we had a falling out. When we did,

    未来へのビジョンが 乖離し始めました そして最終的には 喧嘩になりました私たちがそうした時

  • our board of directors sided with him, and so at thirty, I was out, and very publicly

    取締役会は彼に味方してくれた それで30歳で辞めた 公然とね

  • out. 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 had let the previous


  • generation of entrepreneurs down, that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to


  • me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so


  • badly. 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. The turn of events


  • at Apple had not changed that one bit. I'd been rejected but I was still in love. And

    Appleにいても、それは少しも変わっていませんでした。私はフラれてしまいましたが まだ恋をしていましたそして

  • 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. Pixar went on to create the world's first computer-animated feature film, "Toy


  • Story," and is now the most successful animation studio in the world.

    Story, "は、今や世界で最も成功したアニメーションスタジオとなっています。

  • In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT and I returned to Apple and the technology


  • we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple's current renaissance, and Lorene and I have


  • a wonderful family together.


  • 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 going to 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. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it,


  • and like any great relationship it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So


  • keep looking. Don't settle.


  • My third story is about death. When I was 17 I read a quote that went something like


  • "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It

    それがあなたの最後であるかのように、あなたは毎日を生きている場合、いつかあなたは'll most certainly be right." It

  • made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the


  • mirror every morning and asked myself, "If today were the last day of my life, would


  • I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "no" for


  • too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. Remembering that I'll be dead soon


  • is the most important thing I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life, because


  • almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these


  • things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering


  • that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have


  • something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.


  • About a year ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning and it


  • clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was. The doctors


  • told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should


  • expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and


  • get my affairs in order, which is doctors' code for "prepare to die." It means to try

    get my affairs in order, which is doctors' code for " prepare to die." it means to try.

  • and tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next ten years to tell them,


  • in just a few months. It means to make sure that everything is buttoned up so that it


  • will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.


  • I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy where they stuck


  • an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas


  • and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated but my wife, who was there, told me


  • that when they viewed the cells under a microscope, the doctor started crying, because it turned


  • out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery


  • and, thankfully, I am fine now.


  • This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope it's the closest I get for a few


  • more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty


  • than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept. No one wants to die, even people


  • who want to go to Heaven don't want to die to get there, and yet, death is the destination


  • we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death


  • is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent; it clears


  • out the old to make way for the new. right now, the new is you. But someday, not too

    古いものを排除して新しいものを作る 今は、新しいものはあなたです。しかし、いつか、そうではなくても

  • long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic,


  • but it's quite true. 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, heart and intuition.


  • They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

    彼らはあなたが本当に何になりたいのかを 知っています他のことは二の次だ

  • When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalogue, which was


  • one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stuart Brand not


  • far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was

    ここから遠く離れたメンロパークで 彼はそれを詩的なタッチで生き生きとさせましたこれは

  • in the late Sixties, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made


  • with typewriters, scissors, and Polaroid cameras. it was sort of like Google in paperback form


  • thirty-five years before Google came along. I was idealistic, overflowing with neat tools

    グーグルが登場する35年前のことです私は理想主義者でした きちんとしたツールであふれていました

  • and great notions. Stuart and his team put out several issues of the The Whole Earth

    と素晴らしいアイデアがあります。スチュアートと彼のチームは The Whole Earthの数号を出しました

  • Catalogue, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-Seventies


  • and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning

    私はあなたと同い年でした最終号の裏表紙には 早朝の写真が載っていました

  • country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous.


  • Beneath were the words, "Stay hungry, stay foolish." It was their farewell message as

    Beneath was words, " Stay hungry, stay foolish." It was their farewell message as as as

  • they signed off. "Stay hungry, stay foolish." And I have always wished that for myself,

    彼らはオフに署名しました。 "Stay hungry, stay foolish."And I have always wishished that for myself.

  • and now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you. Stay hungry, stay foolish.

    卒業して新たなスタートを切る君たちのために 願いたい空腹のままで、愚かなままでいてください。

  • Thank you all, very much.


Thank you. I'm honored to be with you today for your commencement from one of the finest
