Last week, Cindy Kent, Healthcare Executive and Philanthropist, posed the question, “What will you do with your one wild and precious life?” to an audience of professional business school graduates.

Kent began her commencement remarks with, “The world needs leaders interested in living lives of significance. The need for moral, ethical, and purpose driven leaders is at an all time high.” Then, she provided four keys to living your best wild and precious life.

Key # 1: Authenticity – “Your authenticity is your unique value proposition.”

Key # 2: Vulnerability – “There is power in vulnerability and admitting what you don’t know.

Key # 3: Learn from Failure – “Never let a good failure, heartbreak, or mistake, go to waste.”

Key # 4: Legacy – “Leave people places, and things better than you found them. Leave a legacy.”

She ended with, “The truth of the matter is all of us have something within us that is whispering and wanting more – to be more, to do more,” she said. “Some call it purpose. Others, vocation. I do not care what you call it […] just allow it; amplify it with intentionality, and in so doing, I would imagine that you will live a life that is bigger (and) better than anything you could have ever imagined.”
