Steven Levitan, UW-Madison grad and TV producer (Modern Family), gave the commencement address at my son's graduation. Steve was a hoot and gave some practical--and funny--advice to the graduates. Here are his points for those who weren't at graduation, or didn't have a pen.
-Roll the dice in your 20's...when you can live in your parent's basement and still be on their insurance.
-Succeed or fail on your own terms...be respectful of others, but stick to your (moral/ethical) guns.
-It's hard to fail 10 times in a row.....keep at it. Steve failed nine times before having a hit.
-Be calm in a crisis...no matter how dark it gets, the light will always come... Steve talked about getting stuck in an elevator, but those of us who know Jesus, always have Thee light.
-It's hard to live up to your potential if you don't like what you do...enough said. Enjoy the journey.
Anyone else hear some good pointers at commencement speeches?
