Note: This is a cross post from my personal website.
I am posting here also because I think that it is a great message.
This is Water is a commencement speech to the Kenyon College class of 2005 written and delivered by David Foster Wallace. Someone added a video to the words of the speech and the result is awesome. Everyone should watch this at least once.
Clicking on the image above will take you to You Tube.
This speech and the included video moved me like few things I find on the internet ever have. I absolutely love this and make it a point to review it on a regular basis. And I won’t claim that when I first heard it that it changed my life or anything as drastic as that. I will say that it came at the right time in my life. A time when I needed to hear it. A time when I was ready for a pivot.
Unfortunately the author has since past and the family keeps tight control of the copyright so this can not be viewed on a remote site such as the one you are on. So when you click the video it will prompt you to go to YouTube to see it. Do it. Believe me it is worth it.
