Read Obituaries


Charles Wheelan’s advice to new college graduates is refreshingly honest, given the “over-optimistic words of the typical commencement address.”

His advice on what success really looks like is to READ OBITUARIES.

Really? Obituaries? Yes.

Wheelan smarty explains why… “Read obituaries. They are just like biographies, only shorter. They remind us that interesting, successful people rarely lead orderly, linear lives.

Smart and simple thinking. Love it.
