So, does education matter or experience? We have been going back and forth on this frequently recently.
Donald Trump says its experience, and most of the people that I meet concur.
Where you will be 2 years after you graduate does not depend on whether you spent $$$$ studying at LUMS or went to other univs here, but on how little you were willing to sleep and “have a life” in those early years of your careers.
20 years after you graduate no one would even care about your education — they will care about the type of dealmaker you are in a specific type of industry.
The thing to consider is this: Why would you want to depend on the brand of someone else (e.g. LUMS) to have people respect you? Why can’t your own worth by enough to turn heads?
The bottom line should be this: The key to becoming that glowing gem that everyone in the industry is desperate to know and associate with IS in how dependable you can become.
Can someone else put his credibility on the line to push your ideas forward, and then KNOW that you will be right there to catch the ball and execute?
If you can, you will not only have the elusive job satisfaction but will also make millions. You will have the credibility and the right to propose your ideas, and you will be able to do the types of things you want to do.
If you cannot, then all you are is a person who keeps complaining about letting him do what he wishes to do — no one backrolls, supports or puts their money on unreliable and undependable people.
That was my take — Donald’s take is more business oriented and you can read it here.
