J K Rowling on Failure and Imagination

She may be the best-selling author of the Harry Potter series but J K Rowling knows a thing or two about the importance of failure - and of course, imagination. This is an oldie but a goodie:


J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement from Harvard Magazine on Vimeo.

We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.
We have the power to imagine better.
