what to do with your life

i like john green's short discussion about the ever-present question of "what should i do with my life?"  

there is not a simple answer, because there is no single answer.   listen...





he gives lots of interesting perspective and this general advice, which i wholeheartedly agree with!

study broadly and without fear,
learn a language if you can
(because that will make your life more interesting),
read a little bit everyday,
try to surround yourself with people you like
and make cool stuff with them.


ps.  has anyone read any of john green's books?   i have not, and i'm curious about what you think if you have.  thanks!

I've read one of his books, Paper Towns, and found it a real page-turner. I'm keen to read some more but they're all out on loan at my local library at the moment.
