‘Trust And Respect Are Two Things That You Earn Very Slowly And Can Lose All At Once’

Almost as soon as I got to college, I wanted out. I’d started a business. It was growing exponentially, and at the time, it felt to me like college was a distraction. Real life, I thought, was out there. One point of clarification: when a college freshman says he’s dropping out because he’s selling something out of his dorm room, it’s probably not 10MB hard drives. But that is what I was selling, and it put me on a path that’s been more interesting, more challenging, more fulfilling and more fun than I could have ever imagined. Thirty-five years later, I’m here to tell you that what you’ve gained here, by completing your degree, will be indispensable out there. In a world that doesn’t wait, you should be proud for taking the time to finish what you started. It took me a lot longer than four years to learn the value of patience. You’ve also gained the trust and respect of your friends and mentors. Don’t take that for granted, because trust and respect are two things that you earn very slowly and can lose all at once.
