Hail to the Graduates!

Hail to the Graduates!
I hope you’ll excuse the one-day delay of this Monday MAGIC message – I just returned from giving a commencement address at Brown University, my grad school alma mater on the occasion of my receiving the Horace Mann Medal! Wow. What an honor… I am still buzzing aweek after returning. My address was called ‘Think Like Galileo’ featured the Maestro’s lessons for remaining relevant for half a millennium. I spoke on the value of letting serendipity percolate into your life, having plans but avoiding the sunk-cost fallacy, and managing expectations in order to live a life without regret.
I also got to be inthe presence of greatness – great perseverance and stamina in the person of Manfred Steiner, PhD. Manfred received his PhD right in front of me on stage at age 90! I was so impressed. Check out his remarkable life and advice for graduates and anyone struggling to maintain meaning as they ‘grow’ up.
Thanks for the advice for grads – don’t forget to let me know what was the best (or worst) commencement advice you ever received? 
Stay tuned for special Father’s Day episode with Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Powers on June 19.

Hi! I'm the Chancellor's Distinguished Professor of Physics at UC San Diego where my team & I study the origin & evolution of space, time, & matter. I believe scientists are obligated to explain their work in simple terms to non-experts. I think scientifically and I want you to too.

Every two weeks I share ideas with you via my "Monday M.A.G.I.C. Messages" -- I send you a Memory, a recent Appearance, something to stoke your Genius, an inspiring Image, and a deep Conversation.

I wrote INTO THE IMPOSSIBLE & LOSING THE NOBEL PRIZE which was a Best Science Book at Science Friday, Amazon, Science News, Physics Today, Forbes, & Symmetry Magazine., named one of the best cosmology books of all time. I'm on a mission to magnify curiosity, stoke imagination, & inspire minds of all ages.

Join me, because "The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them: into the impossible!"
