JK Rowling on the Fringe Benefits of Failure

I have another offering to make for Imbolc. This is JK Rowling giving the Harvard Commencement speech. She choose to talk that day on the power of failure. This heartfelt talk is something every artist, writer, speaker, activist and organizer will appreciate:

That is such an amazing speech. I suddenly wanted to read her books, nothing had tempted me before.

Thanks for the reminder!

This was truly wonderful. Again, I apologize for not remembering where I saw it when I added it to my blog.

Thank you so much for sharing it.
