    My advice.

    In school when you make mistakes, it reflects with your letter grade; in real life, when you make mistakes you’ll get fired. Find something you’re good at, be the best at what you do, do it with passion and find ways to improve yourself for today and tomorrow–only then you’ll succeed. Otherwise, you’ll be on track for a rough ride.

    Mistakes are part of life. Just learn from them and move on. Some people won’t learn until they make a mistake. A little bit of negative reinforcement isn’t all that bad.

    In a way, reality is easier because unlike school, your job is more focused and repetitive. The competition in school is ridiculous as well. Everybody trying to see who got a better grade, but in the real world, the winner is the one who got the job. I remember “competing” with girls in school. When I said something is hard, they’re like “no, it’s so easy”. Now many of them can’t get jobs and are home with kids sucking gov’t money.

    In school, although I don’t approve of it, you can get by without your best efforts and manage to finish with a “C” average. At work on the other hand, you are expected to be an “A” employee even though no one is paying attention. Even when others don’t address your mishaps at that instance, once promotions or lay-offs are imminent, be sure you your work ethics will be discussed within management.

    I agree with you brach that we should all strive to be the best in whatever we so choose! And I also believe it’s all about work ethics and attitude!

    Your thought is absolutely right that we should improve in ourselves because it’s not a world of goods.
