This YouTube video of Steve Jobs is making the rounds again and for good reason. It's less than two minutes long and it encapsulates one of the best bits of advice Steve Jobs ever offered on how to succeed.
This fits perfectly with what Ashton Kutcher said in his Teen Choice Awards acceptance speech paraphrasing Steve Jobs that I posted here the other day:
Everything around us that we call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you... So build a life. Don't live one.
