How do you appear to be smarter than you probably are? Education. How do you appear to do something really well? Training. What is the difference?
Self-reliance. An educated person is considered smart, because they can be self sufficient. A well trained person can only rely on the knowledge that someone has given to them.
Education = Term Papers
When I was in school I communicated well. I had no issues with a speech or a term paper. However most people dread it. Public speaking is one of the greatest fears in society. This fear is due to the mindset that you aren’t an effective communicator.
The term paper in school often got misconstrued, and the end goal was lost.
I will now educate you, and thus end the horrifying juxtaposition of what a term paper should be, and what you believe a term paper is.
How to write a term paper:
- Read something that proves your point
- Write down how you are right because you read about it
Oftentimes we get caught up in the training aspect of the term paper. My life completely changed in college when “The Richest Guy I Know” told me that the only reason I was doing those term papers was so I could learn how to look up something.
Training isn’t bad, but is the end.
When people go to training, they learn something, and that is it. If your boss trains you on something and you don’t do it. He will explain how you have been trained you should know better. However education is repetition. Education is why we have technological advances as a society.
If I teach 10 people everything I know, and they truly grasp it, before I know they would be a better me, than me.
So when you read my recommended mini-education. Remember this isn’t read and finish. It is read, understand, and leave with an education.
