I am glad to stumble upon this short film today. It is an excerpt of a commencement speech by the writer, David Foster Wallace, at Kenyon College in 2005 converted to a short film by The Glossary (video production house).

I wasn’t really expecting what I am going to see as the film started off from with gold fishes and then moving on to young people, for whom the original speech was intended for.

A truly inspiration speech that gives you a reality check on the rat race life that we are stuck in, day in and day out. Makes you re-think the way you think, and may bring about a positive change in you. A must watch.


I’m a marketing strategist by day. Marketing and strategy are 2 things that I enjoy because they give me the chance to do what I do best: think, identify opportunities, and connect the dots. By night, I love to inspire people to think big. I truly believe and advocate that every individual has the potential to go beyond what he or she thinks they’re capable of.
