Value of Education
Being truly educated is acquiring the ability to learn. A college degree is a dormant piece of paper that rests in a file cabinet or hangs on a wall. It represents the sum of achievements up to a moment in time. The exponential knowledge of industry professionals is dynamic. So we must be able to read, attend conventions, and watch videos that expand our horizons.
People bid tens of thousands—even millions—of dollars to have lunch with visionaries like Warren Buffett  or Tim Cook . No amount of food is worth that much. Winners hope to gain a morsel of insight that can catapult their own future.
I am not a Buffett or Cook (although I can cook and enjoy a good buffet). But there are times when I come across someone with apparent potential. I begin sharing benefits from my decades of experience to a glassy-eyed audience of one. But as I lean my head to one side, their gaze is stationary. Nothing is absorbing. I could throw jelly beans at their forehead and still not get a reaction.
An entrepreneur who wants to expand a business disregards tips to access money and pitch a business opportunity to investors. A talented artist is overwhelmed by advice to put work on a website and send emails to companies that use his style of work. Someone wants to pick my brain for marketing ideas, but recognizes neither the meaning of the word or the value of the recommendations.
The purpose of this blog is to make gems of wisdom more accessible. During the leisure of a lunch break, you can explore my mind, benefit from prior trial and error. Something valuable will either take root and flourish or bead up like mist on a waxed apple. I am hopeful that you will find beneficial insights that resonate as you continue expanding your education.
