Education Is Not an Indicator for ‘Success’ (Learning is not Education): | princenasir's Blog
During discussion with my friend on facebook, my hot button got hit by him when he asked whether education was important for success or not. I told him an old saying, if knowledge is power then librarians would rule the world. They don’t means something else is related to success than Education. Millions of high degree and position holders make less during their careers than people who dropped out of high schools and worked only in their field of interest. Have you ever noticed? How the cleverest people at school are not those who make it in life? What you learn at schools and colleges are facts, known facts. What we do is just remember facts that have been told. A life of sheltered study does not allow you to learn the core fact of the world -- business is only concerned with reality. Learning is completely different than being educated. Education fills our heads with information, while learning transforms our lives and the world around us. If you want to know facts, get an education. But if you desire to change your lives or make money, then you better off apprenticing with someone who’s done it. I believe education itself nothing, one should carry on with his talent and polish his inner qualities by participating in social activities apart from education. The truth is that education is the fruit of temperament, not success the fruit of education. What makes oneself successful? According to research education doesn’t show up in the top four; which are: Think Big - Being a visionary is most important. If you can’t see it , you can’t shoot for it. Speed of Execution – Take action while others are planning. Never giving up – Being the bull dog; finding a way to make it work. Being a life long learner. In a word, knowing a lot of stuff is good but learning is important for success – a degree (traditional education) is not. Education is terrific for knowledge but not an indicator for success. Many things must be in place to be successful
