You Cannot Win in Improv – Or Life

Just a quick post to share a terrific commencement speech from Stephen Colbert.  Although I loved Conan’s speech, Colbert, speaking at his alma mater Northwestern University, hits a perfect mix of topical, hilarious, personal, and touching.

>You cannot win improv.  And life is an improvisation.  You have no idea what’s going to happen next and you are mostly just yanking ideas out of your ass as you go along.  And like improv, you cannot win your life.
