Need some inspiration?

Are you one of the 10,244,615 viewers that has watched this Harvard Graduate School of Education graduation speech? Donovan Livingston addresses his classmates with spoken word and highlights the obstacles African-Americans have faced trying to get a formal education.

Watch the whole thing – one of my favourite parts is afterwards – as he stands, smiling at the applause, a good head above the rest of the people on the stage.

This speech will be quoted for years to come. My favourite part is his closing: “I belong among the stars. And so do you. And so do they. Together, we can inspire galaxies of greatness for generations to come. No, sky is not the limit. It is only the beginning. Lift off.”

Start your day as I just did. Grab a coffee and watch “Lift Off” here: http://www.gse.harvard.edu/news/16/05/lift
