Carmel HS: Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

WGI Scholastic World Gold Medalist, 97.1

“Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college, but it was very, very clear looking backwards ten 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 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.”


Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, eloquently delivered this message to the Stanford University graduating class of 2005.  In his inspirational commencement address, Jobs describes “three stories” that profoundly influenced his life:  Connecting the dots, Love and Loss, And Death.   

 Audiences received a thought-provoking and exhilarating illustration of those events that shape our lives; especially once examined through the beneficial lens of hindsight.  The 2011 Carmel High School Winter Guard borrowed the closing words of Jobs speech as they proudly performed…

“Stay Hungry.  Stay Foolish.”
