Peabody and Emmy Award-winning journalist and producer Maria Shriver gives the commencement address to the class of 2012 at the USC Annenberg School of Communications. Her message is something everybody can learn from.
“But today, I have one wish for you. Before you go out and press that fast forward button, I’m hoping – I’m praying – that you’ll have the courage to first press the pause button. That’s right: the pause button. I hope if you learn anything from me today, you learn and remember — The Power of the Pause. Pausing allows you to take a beat — to take a breath in your life. As everybody else is rushing around like a lunatic out there, I dare you to do the opposite.”
