One Thing I Learned Today and Important for Our Generation


From his experience, the author reported that the fresh graduate in his team did not appear to be prepared for the reality of working in a team. The graduate lacked a sense of professionalism and responsibility, frequently citing her mood as an excuse for not completing her work, and even requested a higher salary.

 I have noticed that many students now are focused on getting their degree and graduating quickly, but are they aware of the valuable status of being a student? This status gives us the opportunity to learn, to make mistakes and learn from them, and to build our future. I am thankful to have friends who are passionate and enthusiastic about their studies, internships, part-time jobs, businesses, and social activities, but also understand that my friends with their final projects also have to make decisions regarding their time. Both options offer positive benefits and there are various factors that can influence their decisions.

As students, it is a valuable opportunity to be able to develop our skills and attitude simultaneously. We should not view entering the workforce as a requirement to become professionally prepared, instead, developing our skills and attitude is essential in order to become a successful individuals. Hard skills are important but so are the attitudes and mannerisms that you carry, both of which are reflective of your professionalism. Therefore, it is important to learn how to position yourself and make the most of this student status. If you feel you need to develop more competence, focus on developing a good attitude alongside it. Likewise, if you feel you have the necessary skills, maximize them with a good attitude. This is something I have learned, that no matter how quickly or slowly someone graduates from college, their attitude is what will help them grow and maximize their opportunities after graduation.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than the past, education, money, circumstances, failures, than successes, what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a school, or a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in charge of our attitudes. -Charles Swindoll
