Mike Judge UCSD Commencement Speech

Tuesday, January 08, 2013 04:00 AM

I found this amazing UCSD Commencement Speech from 2009, if you don't know who Mike Judge is check out his IMDB page here.

Here's a great excerpt from the speech ...

There is another path to take, and if you take that path. It's hard work. You'll be right sometimes, you'll be wrong sometimes. You know people will doubt you, you'll doubt yourself. But if you are doing something you want and have a passion for, or if you're working towards doing something you want or have a passion for at least you'll have that to guide you. You should also know there are a lot of really mean stupid bosses out there. But there are also some really good ones that do good things. When you work for other people you'll find ... that they do know whats best for them, and for the company. And you should listen to them and be respectful, but they don't know whats best for you. Only you know that. And weather you are working for yourself or someone else you should find that and know that.
