48: The Past vs The Future

Have you noticed how the cleverest people in school are not those who make it in life?

Whatever you learn at school, remember those are just facts, known facts

Your job at school is to accumulate and remember facts. The more you can remember, the better you do

Those who fail at school are not interested in facts, or maybe the facts are not put to them in a way they find interesting

Some people simply don’t have a great faculty for memory

It doesn’t mean they are stupid. It means their imagination hasn’t been fired up by academic tuition

People who are conventionally clever get jobs on their qualifications (the past), not on their desire to succeed (the Future)

Very simply, they get overtaken by those who continually strive to be better than they are

As long as the goal is there, there is no limit to anyone’s achievement

Be well
