Mark Zuckerberg's Harvard Commencement Speech

Mark Zuckerberg launched FaceBook from his college dorm room in 2004. It is one of the quintessential visionary moves of this century. Yesterday, he returned to deliver this year's Harvard commencement speech, and he gave some really good, visionary-type, advice:

"Today I want to talk about purpose. But I’m not here to give you the standard commencement about finding your purpose. We’re millennials. We’ll try to do that instinctively. Instead, I’m here to tell you finding your purpose isn’t enough. The challenge for our generation is creating a world where everyone has a sense of purpose. "One of my favorite stories is when John F Kennedy visited the NASA space center, he saw a janitor carrying a broom and he walked over and asked what he was doing. The janitor responded: 'Mr. President, I’m helping put a man on the moon'. "Purpose is that sense that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, that we are needed, that we have something better ahead to work for. Purpose is what creates true happiness."

Here's the entire speech:
