To contribute your worth to the world, don’t follow your passion; follow your talent.
College graduates accumulate plenty of advice – mostly irrelevant, trite platitudes – as they prepare to depart their alma maters. However, venture capitalist Ben Horowitz, a Columbia graduate, presents the Columbia Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science’s class of 2015 with life tips of a more unconventional nature. getAbstract believes his counsel will resonate with all today’s students, including scholars at the University of Life.

- Why following your passion may not be the best path and
- Why the current generation of graduates has the potential to be the greatest yet.
