Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook posed a challenge for MIT graduates during their graduation on Friday when he told them to ask themselves during their careers, “How will you serve humanity?”
Cook focused his highly anticipated speech on his own experience trying to find meaning in his career, which he ultimately came upon when he joined Apple 20 years ago.
“There will be days where you will ask yourself where’s all this going? What is the purpose?” Cook told the graduates. “What is my purpose? I’ll be honest. I asked myself that same question and it took nearly 15 years to answer it.”
When Cook first joined Apple, the now-deceased co-founder Steve Jobs had just returned to the company and was reinvigorating it with the mission to “empower the crazy ones.” But there was a larger mission at Apple that ultimately became Cook’s, as well.
