Tim Minchin gave a guest speech at his alma mater, The University of Western Austrailia.
His advice to graduates on how "to be" is very interesting, to sum it up very very simply, he says:
1. You don't have to have a dream.
2. Don't seek happiness.
3. Remember, it's all luck.
5. Be hard on your opinions.
6. Be a teacher.
7. Define yourself by what you love.
8. Respect people with less power than you.
9. Don't rush.
