The gap between "real life" & education has widened, and it handicaps people in many forms
1-You dont know how to lead yourself
A degree provides a done for you plan, all the steps are laid out. This engrains being a follower....
but if that plan was taken away, & you had to design your own education, you'd be at a total loss
The belief that life is linear and sequential and safe is entirely false,
You lack intuition when you think this way
The grading system tricks you into thinking that "good enough" is enough in real life.
this ruins work ethic, it trains you to be lazy and then try to make it for it
Real world, C+ effort is a mediocre life
Real world, the BEST are who get ahead.
And no one cares about the "okay" job you did.
Many get through college doing LESS than their best,
And then are blindsided when real life doesn't reward their mediocrity of effort.
Life does not unfold neatly in even and clear steps, trying to make "perfect" plans is crippling because its impossible to account for all variables
The outcome is you do nothing, out of fear
Classroom learning is not real knowledge. Much of what you are taught may very be contrived, fundamentally false BULLSHIT that reality itself will railroad and destroy
Life will be painful as you realize how misled you are
Make up exam, credit, quizzes etc.
NOT in the real world.
You fail, you miss an opportunity, TOUGH SHIT.
No it will not.
You miss, you miss.
Want a do-over? Not happening.
You rarely get 2nd chances, and they are not to be relied upon
Real world-failure happens, & you must keep persisting
College-Dont worry, just take the class over, it’s okay.
When you fail for the first time in real world, it's crippling to you, you've zero idea of how to think about it, handle it, use it
This lasts until you get your degree and the high goes away in 2 days.
And then your lack of long term planning hits you, and lack of leadership hits you, and lack of security hits you And then you freak out
One must have short, middle, long term aims, and an overarching process for what their intentions are
Goals do not guarantee anything, nor will they fulfill you in the ways you think they will
This is the worst one. Aside from being fed modernist bullshit, indoctrinated, and turned into a zombie
You think your mental fragility is a righteous cause and everything that disagrees with you must be stamped out
You've never had to handle fear of the unknown, aside from struggling with coursework
You'll need to be broken of your delusions and learn to be brave
80/20 useless to useful in terms of the students it churns out
For every person doing college "right" there are 10 others who are left dumber, in debt, and less capable than when they started
