Jeff Bezos Delivers an Inspiring and Endearing Graduation Keynote Speech

By: Jaime Neely - Published: Oct 10, 2012 • References: amazon &
Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, delivers an inspiring and engaging graduation keynote speech at Princeton University. His speech focuses on the differences between gifts in life, and choices in life. The difference between being clever and kind is that cleverness is a gift, but being kind is a choice. Using the gifts people possess to act kindly towards others is something Bezos encourages the entire audience of students to strive for.

He asks the students to think about whether or not they will choose a life of ease or a life of service and adventure; will they wilt under criticism or will they follow their convictions? Bezos graduation keynote speech is unique in that it hardly touches on his success at Amazon, and instead, demonstrates a very human side of him. Stats for A Life of Action Trending: Older & Mild
