There’s no better group to apply this quote than to students at institutes of higher learning such as Berkeley. I am astounded time and again by how truly smart people are.
In the two-and-a-half years I’ve gone to Cal, I’ve learned to never, ever underestimate a person’s intelligence. Even if that person didn’t appear or sound smart at first glance, I’d be proven wrong or blown away by the time I finally realize his/her true potential.
Application to self: Leverage your strengths, and work to improve your weaknesses.
At this point in time, I feel that I’m much better with creative thinking and writing than I am working with pure numbers. I’m deeply considering what I want to do in the future, and I hope that whatever it is, it will either play to my strengths or help me to improve my weaker attributes. Or better yet, both. Now that would be the dream job.
It just so happens that Haas results came out yesterday. Please re-read my previous post if you haven’t already, and keep in mind the above-mentioned application to self.
It doesn’t matter how you do it. If you truly have a goal or passion in life and you work hard to achieve it, you most definitely will, regardless of the pathway.
