This and Steve Jobs' speeches have got to be my all time favorite.

this guy really is inspiring, and i didn't know much about him till i watched this video, which then intrigued me to do some research on the guy. this guy never went to college (which seems a common theme of the truly successful people), but here he is giving some of the best advice I've heard.

Basically he gives 6 main points
1. when you first start out in your career you have no idea what is possible or impossible, and that's a good thing.
2. have an idea of what you wanna do and then do it.
3. don't do it for the money
4. make mistakes
5. be unique in whatever it is your niche is. be different. be YOU.
6. enjoy the ride.

he ellaborates a lot more, and how he says it has much more profound meaning, but that's just the cliff notes version. enjoy and discuss my fellow ATSers.

I used to read his Sandman comics. So that's what he looks like.

This guy is only second to Terry Pratchett. Imo.

Saw the speech earlier. Good speech.

Great speech from my favorite author. I have every work he's published, if any of you have never read his stories or comics I highly suggest it
