One Minute Blog: My Speech at Illinois Institute of Technology Graduation Day


I recently blogged about this in detail, but for those of the readers who prefer brevity, here is a concise version of the blog. This speech got a sizable traction in social media with 15000+ views on LinkedIn and 500+ on YouTube.

The key points that I shared during my speech are summarized below, followed by a Sketchnote.


1. Stay in the present
  • "Just block all the future thoughts and bask in the glory of current moment."
  • "Embrace this time with all your senses."
  • "Seize the moment."
2. Think Big:
  • "Let this not be the defining moment of your life."
  • “Educational Qualifications are not the ends in itself, they are the means to achieve something greater.”
3. Embrace Non-linearity
"Skills do have an expiry date and this expiry date is shortening by the day."
"Continuous learning is not a differentiator anymore, it is a mandatory."
“If we do not change the way we teach, 30 years from now we will be in trouble."- Jack Ma
"Learn Empathy"
