Don’t go to college……

imageDon’t go to college to become something

Go to become someone, to come closer to who you want to be, your skills, not a title

 

Don’t go to college to learn something

Go to college to understand something, and to dig deeper in to what you think you understand

 

Don’t go to college to make friends

Go to college to understand your enemies better, to hang out with people you would never ever thought you’d have anything in common with in high school

 

Don’t go to college to improve yourself

Go to college to make mistakes, and to accept all your imperfections 

 

Don’t go to college so you will know everything

Go to college to question anything

 

Don’t go to college and expect to have leverage over those who did not

Go to college and know that they will have a much more interesting CV

 

Don’t go to college to make money

Go to college and find a way to make a living while being in love with what you are doing

 

Don’t go to college to be smart

Go to college to recognize your own stupidity

 

And most important

Don’t go to college for someone other than yourself. 

You may ponder over if college is the path for you. If you’re unsure, try it. You can always change paths, and there is no such thing as wasting time, you will always get something out of it. If you’re sure it’s not. Don’t let anyone change your mind unless that someone is you.
