For his latest original track “Don’t Settle,” Aaron Scott looks to the late Steve Jobs for some inspiration.
Notably one of his best speeches ever, the track powers up with a sample of Jobs’ thought-provoking (perhaps life-changing) 2005 commencement speech at Stanford University.
You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle. – Steve Jobs
While he doesn’t sample the speech in its entirety and decides to remix the arrangement, Aaron Scott samples the two most powerful lines in the speech: “Do what you believe is great” and “Don’t settle.”
Overall this is a simple melodic house track that is a great source of inspiration, especially if you need a boost of confidence.
