At the Teen Choice Awards last night, Ashton Kutcher won the "Ultimate Choice" prize, whatever that is, which the 35-year-old described as the "old guy award." In his acceptance speech, the actor took the opportunity to pass along life advice to the screaming, squealing 16-year-old girls in the audience. It was either the best time to hit an impressionable group of kids or, if you focus just on the screaming, the worst.
Regardless, the speech was fantastic. Kutcher is obviously still in a Steve Jobs mood after filming his upcoming movie (not only does he quote Jobs, he swipes Jobs' old way of laying out his speeches—in both his keynotes and famously in his Stanford commencement, the CEO would nearly always begin by saying he wanted to talk about "three things"), but that shouldn't discount that Kelso of all people gave some pretty good advice. Work hard, be smart, and remember this: "Life can be a lot broader when you realize one simple thing everything around us that we call life was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can build your own thing. You can build your own life.”
And as I sit here on a dreary Monday morning I find myself... really inspired by Kutcher? Interesting way to start the week.
