Australian comedian and singer Tim Minchin’s graduation speech at The University of Western Australia has gone viral, and with good reason. In nine succinct points, the comedian advises his fellow students about life after education and it’s worth a listen for its dark humor, and depressing yet inspiring messages. The points Tim live by are as follows:
1. You don’t have to have a dream.
2. Don’t seek happiness.
3. Remember, it’s all luck.
5. Be hard on your opinions.
6. Be a teacher.
7. Define yourself by what you love.
8. Respect people with less power than you.
9. Don’t rush.
