Working Wounded Blog: Jobs Without Degrees

Share
Copy

Don't get me wrong, I don't have a beef with college. I just believe that the life experiences and minds of many who have not graced the hallowed halls of academia are a terrible thing to waste. So enjoy your degree. Just don't look down on people who don't have one. Heck, you just might be able to learn something from them.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"Few great men could pass personnel." -- Paul Goodman

BOOK EXCERPT OF THE WEEK

From "The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook" (Currency, 1994):

"The physicist David Bohm (one of the main contributors to the theory of dialogue) points out that the Western word 'measure' and the Sanskrit 'maya' appear to derive from the same origins. Yet, in the West, the concept of measure has come to mean 'comparison to some fixed external unit' while maya means 'illusion.'"
