Tim Minchin’s Amazing Graduation Speech

The University of Western Australia recently invited singer/songwriter/provocateur Tim Minchin to give a graduation speech, and as with just about everything he does, he delivered beautifully:

The best part of the video is watching the man behind Minchin giggle as he speaks…

Minchin’s advice boils down to this:

1. You don’t have to have a dream.

2. Don’t seek happiness.

3. Remember, it’s all luck.

4. Exercise.

5. Be hard on your opinions.

6. Be a teacher.

7. Define yourself by what you love.

8. Respect people with less power than you.

9. Don’t rush.

Save yourself the tuition and just take that advice. You’ll come out ahead.
