I’ve graduated three times, and I remember absolutely NOTHING the commencement speaker said at each ceremony. Kind of sad, huh?
I remember more from the 2005 graduation speech at Stanford. (Steve Jobs: “You are already naked.”)
I found this great essay written in the Wall Street Journal, “10 Things Your Commencement Speaker Won’t Tell You.” It’s practical, poignant and memorable advice.
As I was putting this post together, I had another tragic realization: I’ve received more memorable life lessons from Hollywood than I have when wearing a cap and gown. To honor that realization, I gave the WSJ feature a cinematic spin.
Can you guess all 10 of these films? (Personal note: I did NOT and will NOT see No. 8)
