JK Rowling’s speech to Harvard

This is a repost of J.K. Rowling, author of the best-selling Harry Potter book series, delivers her Commencement Address, The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination harry_potter_seeding,” at the Annual Meeting of the Harvard Alumni Association.  I do so because it is worthy of listening to.

She talks about the importance of imagination, and how she learnt from and transmuted failure into worldwide success; two critical lessons for us all.  She speaks movingly about learning from failure and even the importance of failing.  I do urge you to watch this, and then emulate her bravery.
