Wasting Your Greatest Opportunity

September 14, 2009

I can’t help but notice how many people are wasting one of the greatest opportunities of their life. Most people in university come from middle class families. Some are better off and others are worse, but that is the average. This makes me wonder why so many people take on such dead end jobs while they are in school.

Right now you have huge saftey net (your parents), little responsibility, and a ton of time. These three things combined mean you can try anything and risk it all for an idea, a project, a job. At the end of the day if things fail, even if they fail horribly you will pretty much end up in the same place as you started. Your crappy job will always be there for you to fall back on, so stop wasting time and go do something worthwhile.
