Advice on How (Not) to Kill Your Dreams

Philipp Dammer

Presented at: OCON 2018

Date: Jun 29, 2018

A STRIVE Session in Collaboration with Philipp Dammer; everyone welcome. Howard Roark’s integrity is usually met by great skepticism. In this talk, Dammer shows that there are Howard Roarks in real life; that Roark’s unyielding integrity is the way to success; and that Keating’s method (“second-handedness”) is a guarantee for disaster. Using examples from the entertainment industry, Mr. Dammer shows that integrity can indeed lead to success and that doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. Students are encouraged to follow-up on Sunday by attending a STRIVE workshop that will help them use Dammer’s ideas (and the principles of Ayn Rand’s philosophy) to evaluate career and life options and to form plans according to their values.
