don’t pursue your passion directly. at least not yet. instead… pursue the things that will empower you. pursue knowledge. be relentlessly curious. listen, learn. you’re leaving harvard this week, but your learning cannot ever, ever be allowed to stop. pursue discipline. it’s an old-fashioned word, but it’s never been more important. today’s world is full of an impossible number of distractions. the world-changers are those who find a way of ignoring most of them. and above all. pursue generosity. not just because it will add meaning to your life — though it will do that — but because your future is going to be built on great ideas and in the future you are entering, great ideas HAVE to be given away.
