British Poet Laureate William Wordsworth struggled through his four years at Cambridge, feeling profoundly alienated from his classes and his classmates. The would-be rival of Milton and Shakespeare gave absolutely no sign of his future greatness. He did, however, do one genius thing during his university years: During his last summer vacation, he walked across France. The walk naturally provided him with subject matter for some of his best poetry; and, far more importantly, Wordsworth’s great adventure gave him time, place, and opportunity to discover the best in himself and determine how he would use his gifts. In the very long tradition of great adventures, heroes have gone in search of all kinds of gizmos and trinkets, grails and stuff, but they always have come home with complete command of themselves. Before you finish college, you owe yourself a great voyage of self-discovery.
Defy ordinary and predictable.
