What does it take to be successful in whatever your hands find to do?
Some would say. . .an undergraduate or post-graduate education. Perhaps, but it’s important to note that Bill Gates never graduated from college. . .neither did Michael Dell. . .nor Debbie of Mrs. Fields Cookies. . nor did 1 out of 4 of the wealthiest 500 people in the United States. In addition, we don’t know how many are even pursuing the field they graduated in.
I have a college degree but I can’t say that I use any of my training in what I do. And my fine wife Bev feels the same way.
Lest you get the wrong idea that we’re down on college . . . that’s not necessarily true. It has its place if you need specific training to get where you want to go.
In other words, I want my doctor to have gone to medical school but lots of higher degrees isn’t for everyone despite the fact that society pushes everyone to have a degree.
