Steve Jobs - "stay hungry, stay foolish"

I really admire Steve Jobs, if you don't know him, he is the CEO and founder of both Apple computer and Pixar and has been recognised worldwide as a truly great innovator (Apple recently voted worlds most innovative company for the 3rd year running by Fortune magazine) and marketer. However his path to success wasn't always so clear, and in his speech to graduating Stanford students in 2005, he tells the story of how he got to where he is now.
If you have some spare time I really would recommend you watch this video, a great speech and a great life message to take away from it.
