Hey beautiful.  Yea you, the one reading this post.

If you have 30 minutes free one of these days and need a little motivation, check out Jim Carrey’s 2014 commencement address for the graduates at Maharishi University of Management.  Besides the expected silliness and expertly executed jokes, Jim is extremely motivating and thoughtful.  He reflects on his life and career in a way that is inspiring and well thought-out.  He talks about escaping the social constructs of everyday life and how to stand out.  My favorite quote in the speech is “Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world”.  In other words, if you try to fit in with everyone you risk being no different than them. ADDED BONUS- JIM WEARS A SILLY ROBE THE WHOLE TIME AND NEVER ADDRESSES IT.

Onward and upward,
