What was the one thing that you learned in your college days?
What I learned was that attendance is a lot more important than what I learn in college.
You could attend all the lectures and pay no attention to what someone is saying, sit on the bench for the entire day and still be in the good books of everyone. Or you can just sit at home learn everything there is to the course and you will still be in the bad books. But that is the problem, in the exams of life, no one would ever be able to teach you what you are supposed to do and you are expected to learn everything on your own.
Now only if everyone could understand this and let you learn on your own, your life would be a lot easier in the long run.
Have you ever read about the richest and the most successful people in the world? Dropouts, failures, uneducated, and still, they are doing a lot better than those passed out from the top colleges of the world. Why? Because they never thought educations is important for them to get what they want. All they wanted was to learn the things they need and used that knowledge wisely.
The passion and desire that makes you go crazy for the things that you want, is what counts. Education might never be able to teach you how to make a decision in life. All it teaches you is the definition of “decisions”.
Becoming successful needs you to take risk and education works to minimize your risks. How are you going to run the long run, when you are scared to take a short leap of faith?
