Being smart, thoughtful and generous is the sexiest thing in the world.
By-the-way, his full name is Chris Ashton Kutcher, he started the speech by revealing that he felt like a fraud, because his first name is not Ashton but Chris, he recapitulated on his life before saying:
“The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful. And being generous. Everything else is crap!”
Kutcher recognized the chance to talk to a younger audience. I am sure he was able to made a difference in the life of many people. Many adults today would wish to have heard something like that when they were kids. We have to recognize that apart from his acting career he also has good investment strategy, he follows smart people, and looks for companies that can solve big problems. He has put money into booming startups like Airbnb, Fab, Spotify, and Uber.
If we want more engineers, more innovators, and more scientist we need more people like Mr. Kutcher shining similar words from the spotlight. As Kutcher finished, he quoted the words of Steve Jobs and instructed the audience to remember that everything around us, was made by people that were not smarter than us. Then, he gave a recap at the end so the kids would remember it. Kutcher has reminded us to always live our lives, appreciate opportunities and always be sexy.
You just need to watch the video to understand what I am talking about and see how Ashton just became a big deal in the future of many young people.
