Many are familiar with his commencement speech at Standford university in 2005. Six years later it still inspires many. Acknowledging his cancer diagnoses he says, “Remembering that I will be dead soon is one of the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything, all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure- these things just fall away in the face of death. Leaving only what is truly important.
