Think About Advice

Many of the commencement speeches have been in the news lately, with speakers offering all kinds of wise-sounding advice. Funny thing – much of the advice in one address seems to be at complete odds with the advice from another.  Should you seize the moment to individually soar, or focus on a relationship which can last forever? Should you follow your dream, or build a collective dream with others to follow?  My guess is there are no “just add water and stir formulas” for success.  Hopefully graduateswill listen, deeply think about, and make up their own minds,rather than simply follow advice because the speaker was a celebrity of some sort.  Probably good advice for all of us as well.
