‘Never, ever expect being average’

‘Forget about your life expectancy. After all, it’s calculated based on an average. And you never, ever want to expect being average. You might be looking forward to working, falling in love, marrying, raising a family. You are told that, as graduates, you should expect to find a job paying so much, where your hours are so much, where your responsibilities are so much. That is what is expected of you. And if you live up to it, it will be an awful waste.
If you expect that, you will be limiting yourself. You will be living your life according to boundaries set by average people.’

– Uit: Adrian Tan, graduation speech
