Every once in a while, I come across something too amazing, too inspirational to keep to myself, wedding wise or not. This is one of those things. JK Rawlings, the wildly successful author of the Harry Potter series, gave the commencement speech at Harvard this year.
She spoke with humility and humor, talking of the value of failure and the joy of imagination. It is truly one of the most motivational performances that I have ever witnesses. I sincerely hope that you gift yourself with 20 minutes or so of time and watch the video that is available on the Harvard Magazine website. You’ll be delighted that you did.
