This article “fell into my lap”.  It lists
what one typically hears at
commencements and what it means
to mere mortals…

Like…

Cliché: “Follow your passion.”
Advice for mere mortals: Do what
you love, but don’t expect to get paid.

To make money, choose a position
/ field / company that pays decently
and has few liabilities.

Cliché: “You’ve got to pay your dues.”
Advice for mere mortals: Show what
you are made of and your good stuff from
the first day. 

Cliché: “Make a difference.”
Advice for mere mortals: Any business
that sells a good product at a fair price
and treats its employees well is a worthy
place to work.

And more….
