Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

Jobs quoted the farewell message placed on the back cover of the 1974 edition of The Whole Earth catalog.

“When I was young, there was an amazing publication called “The Whole Earth Catalog”, which was one of the bibles of my generation…. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along. It was idealistic and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.”That was Steve Job’s explanation of his statement “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish”.

In my opinion,  Being foolish implied being naive about how things should be and thus allowing oneself to see how things could be. In other words, staying hungry refers to stay young and think differently than the “tired ones”. And the only way to do that, is by loving what you do.
