Two Articles that Inspire Me to Live more Meaningfully

by Noman Muhammad

I sometimes characterize me as an Escapist. But sometimes try to be responsible in some issues. For that I often read many articles on life. I find two articles that visualize life more meaningful then I thought. Basically one of the two articles is a speech delivered by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple computer and another is a blog post by Stephen Downes.
The speech by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple computer was delivered at Stanford University. I got this text from this link. The title says "You have got to find what you love, Jobs says". This attracts me very much and I read the text very quickly. It was simply amazing story. I was very much inspired by this

... 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 ...
This is quite inhaling to love work more meaningfully.

I get the second article here. Its a large post and I read the whole post within a short time. But it really create impacts on my mind for long. Some lines of this post is really matter of deep thinking
What is worth doing? That is up to you to decide. I have chosen to dedicate my life to helping people obtain an education. Others seek to cure diseases, to explore space, to worship God, to raise a family, to design cars, or to attain enlightenment. If you don't decide what is worth doing, someone will decide for you, and at some point in your life you will realize that you haven't done what is worth doing at all. So spend some time, today, thinking about what is worth doing. You can change your mind tomorrow. But begin, at least, to guide yourself somewhere.

I really love the sentence from the Steve Jobs' speech "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish"
