Berklee commencement

Check out in particular the student’s speech. A nice Rush reference, and it is a poignant speech, with a theme of achieving excellence. You have to be a pretty good musician to do well at Berklee, and to even get in and be allowed to audition. Being good is really hard.

In other words, not many people actually desire to possess virtue or integrity, probably because it requires a harder path to stay on. It takes more endurance and willpower to preserve an attitude and a work ethic of excellence than it does to just give in to weakness or to give up altogether.

That’s how you get good, at anything.
