And now for a different kind of graduation speech.
Most commencement speeches provide answers of sorts--pieces of wisdom you can carry with you, life strategies you can use down the road. Above James Ryan, Dean of Harvard's School of Education, offers something else--not answers, but questions, the five essential questions to ask as you move through life. He elaborates on each above:
1.) Wait, what?
2.) I wonder, why/if?
3.) Couldn't we at least?
4.) How can I help?
5.) What really matters?
Bonus question: And did you get what you wanted out of life, even so?
