In the past two weeks I have heard from some of my Grads, whose success stories have put wind in my sails. I had the privilege of hearing Malcolm Gladwell speak at the “Art of Marketing” conference in Toronto, and finally got to see Jack Johnson, play some of my favorite music at his concert in YTO. I am feeling pretty upbeat about life and the future in general.
What do I take away from Gladwell, Johnson and my always inspiring Grads? Be creative, be passionate and be committed, because when you commit, your dreams come true. Gladwell, so eloquently reminded us at the Marketing conference, that creativity is easily found, it is the courage to commit, to dig deep and be conscientious about meeting your goals that will lead you there. Are you conscientiously committed? If so, you are almost there, just keep going.
