How to Live Before You Die” Steve Jobs.

How to Live Before You Die” Steve Jobs.

THIS IS THE ASSINGMENT :

We recently looked at Steve Jobs’ speech, “How to Live Before You Die” and read Jeff Haden’s “Do What You Love? Screw That.” Given that a career can last 40 years or more, deciding our college major and what type of career to have after graduation is an enormous decision for a young person. What if doing what you love means you’ll earn a lot less over your lifetime? What if doing what you love means you’ll have a difficult time finding work or might have to move far from family and friends. Of course, working for love OR money doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive. What about selecting a major or occupation because it NEEDS doing, or selecting a job because it is valued by your parents, society, or yourself? What about working a job that is really boring but pays you well enough to afford a big home in California, a really sweet sports car, or an international vacation every year? I’m interested in hearing what you think on this issue. It’s something that is directly affecting you right now.
