They’re sound words of advice for both recent grads and longtime alums. For the full list, click here.
- Anything can look like a failure in the middle.
- Soulmates are created, not found.
- Ignore the advice “follow your passion.”
Rather, cultivate passion in whatever you do.
- There are no shortcuts.
- Multi-tasking is a myth, so actively choose
what you want to pay attention to.
- Take good care of your body. Treat it
like a temple, not a bodega.
- Cherish your relationships.
- Never stop learning. Always think of
yourself as a mentor and a mentee.
- Give for the sake of giving.
- Happiness is a choice.
