I think I may have found it. It was a commencement speech made by Drew Houston at MIT in 2013. Here is a link to the full text: http://newsoffice.mit.edu/2013/commencement-address-houston-0607

This is the paragraph that makes me think it may be a match: 

So that’s how 30,000 ended up on the cheat sheet. That night, I realized there are no warmups, no practice rounds, no reset buttons. Every day we're writing a few more words of a story. And when you die, it's not like "here lies Drew, he came in 174th place." So from then on, I stopped trying to make my life perfect, and instead tried to make it interesting. I wanted my story to be an adventure — and that's made all the difference.
