course of a lifetime.

Bezos graduated from Princeton in 1986 with a degree in computer science and electrical engineering.

I thought these questions about the choices we make, not only applied to recent college or high school graduation students, but also to us as boomers and the beginning of the second half of our lives.

1. Will inertia be your guide, or will you follow your passion? Will you follow dogma, or will you be original?

2. Will you choose a life of ease, or a life of service and adventure? Will you wilt under criticism, or will you follow your convictions?

3. Will you bluff it out when you’re wrong, or will you apologize? Will you guard your heart against refection, or will you act when you fall in love?

4. Will you play it safe, or will you be a little bit swashbuckling? When it’s tough, will you give up or will you be relentless?

5. Will you be a cynic, or will you you be a builder? Will you be clever at the expense of others, or will you be kind?

If you have a grad forward this to them. Boomers are you going to leave a legacy, leave a dent in the universe and make a difference?
