Failure is an option.
Commencement Speech Excerpts:
“It’s O.K. to not really know what you’re doing, and just trust your gut. Make the best judgment you can. There’s not going to be a syllabus assigned to you. It’s going to be using whatever knowledge you’ve gained, whatever resources you have, to just figure it out, to just hack it. I mean, most of the time, I still don’t know what I’m doing."
"That's not to say you won't find your way. You are going to figure it out, and failure is going to be part of the process. You’re all here because you’re good at not failing, right? This is the culmination of doing a great job at not failing. However, There are no G.P.A.s after this. There’s going to be lots of setbacks. There’s going to be lots of failures [...] But that’s O.K. Failure is an option.”
