Conan O’Brien really is an excellent speaker. He has proven this much with his most recent Dartmouth Commencement address. Beyond all the laughter, when Conan speaks seriously, it is sincere and incredibly meaningful.
I loved the line: “It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique. It’s not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right, your perceived failure can become a catalyst for profound re-invention.”
