Awesome summary. Here are the 3 things a Harvard speaker told the grads to worry about
(1.) What are you going to do to make a living?
(2.) How are you going to maintain your relationships?
(3.) How are you going to stay out of prison?
The third one always gets polite laughter until the speaker reveals he was Jeff Skillings' roommate.
Anyway, Tim says it best: go work at a company and build relationships - these will pay you compound interest for life because these will be the people that will hire you or get you hired.
