商界大佬们最令人难忘的六大毕业典礼演讲

Dan Kedmey 2015年05月25日

又到毕业季节,很多商界大佬都应邀担任过毕业典礼上的演讲嘉宾,但最令人难忘的,当属乔布斯、比尔•盖茨和桑德伯格等6人的演讲。他们没有重复“相信自己”这样的陈词滥调,而是动情地讲述了自身经历中那些促使他们成长为全球商界偶像的失败、质疑和盲点,让人深受震撼。

    在毕业典礼上,很少有演讲嘉宾愿意分享那些源自真实工作经历,令人不舒服的人生感悟,能够撼动毕业生心灵的此类演讲更是寥若晨星。但以下这6位商界大佬做到了这一点。他们并没有重复“相信自己”这样的陈词滥调,而是动情地讲述了自身生活经历中那些促使他们成长为业界佼佼者的失败、质疑和盲点。

    On rare occasions, a commencement speaker can jolt graduates to attention with a personal, even uncomfortable truth from their working lives. Here are six speakers who departed from the usual bromides about “believing in yourself,” and mined their own lives for failure, doubts and blind spots that marked their ascent to the top of their fields.

    吉米•艾欧文,南加州大学,2013年

    音乐制作人吉米•艾欧文发现,自己作为音乐制作人所取得的成功,对于改行卖Beats耳机没有任何用处。在演讲中,他大声地说出自己曾经的疑惑:“谁相信说唱巨星Dr. Dre和我会去卖硬件?没有人相信。”他随后着重强调了成功的短暂性:“在50岁的时候,我知道我必须从头做起。”

    他补充说:“请记住一点:你的学历并不代表教育的结束,而是继续教育的开始。”

    Jimmy Iovine, University of Southern California, 2013

    Music producer Jimmy Iovine observed that the successes he had achieved as a music producer didn’t amount to anything when he made the switch to selling Beats headphones. “So who believed that Dr. Dre and I could sell hardware,” he wondered aloud. “No one,” he answered in a speech that underscored the transient nature of success. “I learned even at 50, I had to be a beginner again.”

    “Please remember this: Your diploma does not represent the end of your education, but the beginning of your continuing education,” he added.
