“Be careful of long-term dreams” is the first of “Nine Life Lessons” offered by Tim Minchin, Australian comedian, actor, and musician in his 2013 commencment address at Western Australian University.
Thanks to Facebook, I ran across the video of Minchin’s address. (Although the clip is 18 minutes long, his comments last only 12 minutes–the last six minutes show him receiving an honorary degree).
His Life Lessons provoke thought, laughter, and are often irreverent; and they’re worth considering. Most relevant to careers is the first lesson: “Be careful of long-term dreams.” Take a look and listen! Tim Minchin’s Nine Life Lesson
