My new favorite metaphor:
Share the credit with others because a rising tide floats all boats.
Guy Kawasaki writes “Ten Things to Learn this School Year” and sums up real world examples of educational preparedness. I suppose it should be read as the top 10, because there are hundreds of other examples I can think of. Hell, they’ve written movies and TV series about it. The list is pretty good if not downright funny. Having never attended college officially, I cannot speak to the readiness of our college graduates. I can say however, that nothing but life itself can prepare you for the world. And by prepared, I mean simply that you won’t fall over dead from shock when something things come at you. Stupid birds.
