Thanks to commenter dave for this video of Conan O’Brien’s Dartmouth Commencement speech.
The first 10 – 15 minutes is mostly jokes. Though he makes great points about fairness and the value of a college degree in there.
The last 10 minutes or so has some good life perspective. Try different things. Deal with failure. Be flexible and adaptable.
Whether you fear it or not, disappointment will come. The beauty is that through disappointment you can gain clarity and with clarity comes conviction and true originality.
Whatever you think your dream is now, it will probably change. And that’s okay.
