I’m a bit late in jumping on this bandwagon, but here I go, summoning a Steve Jobs quote that I think can be useful for someone like me, who was never one of those people who had her five- or 10-year plans. This quote comes from Jobs’ address for Stanford University’s 2005 commencement.
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. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
