I found these Baccalaureate remarks that Amazon's Jeff Bezos delivered to the Princenton Class of 2010 via @interfaced and found them to be quite inspiring. I've added a short teaser below but I'd really recommend you to read the whole speech:

Entrepreneur State of Mind [video]

Since I'm already in blog-posting rather than getting-things-done mode I might as well post a third video. The YouTube description really says it all:

"It's a spoof of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind," from the guys behind (thank you!). We made it because there's a new type of dork that is cooler than ever. Look at tech entrepreneurs, hipsters, Computer Science Barbie - they're all super popular new dorks!"

Everything is OK [video]

This is definitely one of those videos where you're not sure whether you're supposed to laugh or cry, right?
