J.K. Rowling on “The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination”

02/19/10

Someone should make a book collecting the great graduation speeches by successful people. I really appreciated Rowling’s point about stripping your life down to the essentials and ignoring others’ wishes for you. That said, I don’t think it’s necessary to fail to do so, though it does make a good story.
