Harvard Dean Lists the 5 Essential Questions to Ask In Life … Which Will Bring You Happiness & Success

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?

You can watch Ryan's complete commencement speech here.
