Objective Proficiency p 146. Stephen Fry: What I Wish I Knew When I Was 18. Extra Listening

Above you can listen to British writer and actor Stephen Fry offering life lessons based on his 54 years living in this world. Some of the highlights:
  • Don’t set goals for yourself, particularly material ones. They’re disastrous and will keep you from becoming who you really are.
  • Keep your ego in check. You’ll be better liked, and more opportunities will come your way. 
  • Get outside your comfort zone by traveling to distant lands and reading books in a serendipitous way. 
  • Be a giver, not a taker. It’s more rewarding. 
  • Learn with friends. 
  • Have heroes. 
  • And always think for yourself. 
This talk was recorded in April 2010 and runs 31 thought-filled minutes.
