Advice to students and young alumni: “To get where you want to be, the obvious first step is to identify your goals. Set aside time every morning to figure out how you can move yourself towards them and do not rest until you are satisfied that you are closer to those accomplishments than when you woke up. Do that and you will never waste a single day.”
