Charlie Day Tells College Graduates About the Importance of Risk, Failure, and Not Giving a Shit


Here’s a recent commencement speech It’s Always Sunny’s Charlie Day gave to his alma mater Merrimack College that’s two parts hilarious and one part sincerely enlightening. Day tells the story of turning down a comfy financial services job offer after college to instead move to New York to pursue an acting career, why “having a plan B can muddy up your plan A,” and why failing is so important to success: “Do what’s uncomfortable and scary and pays off in the long run.”
