Aside from the obvious .....money, is there really a point?
When I was in high school, I had grandiose plans for changing the world. Yep, I would put my plan into action in college and then my life would really start when I graduated.
Fast forward a a decade and reality has set in. I won't be changing the world, I won't make a million, and I won't feel a profound sense of accomplishment.
If parents and professors were honest, here is the reality they would tell kids at 18:
- You probably won't like working.
- You will get stuck working for and around people you despise.
- You will never believe you are paid your worth.
- Cheaters DO prosper.
- All's fair in love and war ......... and work.
- The line between having a career and a job is short.
- That pain in your back isn't aging. It's a knife. Maybe several.
- While you can avoid becoming an ass-kisser, you won't avoid having to be nice to assholes.
