That’s because the Internet has nearly limitless value you can use it to look up the correct spelling of a word, or to translate text between languages, or even figure out “what’s the name of that guy from that movie who was in that other movie?”

For teaching me to stop attributing value to unimportant things, and start trusting my instincts. Before reading Jobs’ speech, I was working a job I hated because it was really the only thing I ever tried. It was what I knew. Jobs says “You’ve got to find what you love. ” His article helped me realize that I was wasting my life living someone else’s dream. If I settled for someone else’s dream, I’d grow old and die without ever seeking my own.

    There have been many milestones but graduating from college and my dad dying are two major life experiences. I m 25 and my advice is have fun, make sure to get your education, don t make anyone sway you into anything you don t want to do, find away to make money doing what you love. Keep a good credit score.

    Even at first, when the whole research group sat there doing rote calculations and others felt like they were staring down the barrel of defeated purpose, I remained enthusiastic. Time and time again I reminded myself of that famous phrase "great effort leads to great rewards," and sure enough, soon my aspirations began to be met. This shift in attitude also coincided with a shift in location: from the computer desk to the laser lab. It was finally time to get my hands dirty.

    Now things began to get really interesting. During the experimentation phase of the project, I spent the majority of my waking hours in the lab – and I enjoyed every minute of it. From debriefing with my coordinator in the morning to checking and rechecking results well into the afternoon, I was on cloud nine all day, every day. I even loved the electric feeling of anxiety as I waited for the results. Most of all, though, I loved the pursuit of science itself. Before I knew it, I was well into the seventh week and had completed my first long-term research experiment.

    I always enjoyed going to the lake and bathing in the sun, or taking stale bread to the park and feeding the ducks. Charity is also free and opens all kinds of doors to friendship. ;-)

    I think that the biggest change for me was when my children left home.All of a sudden the most important job That God gave me was not there anymore.It was also hard not being able to see them every day.For a long time I felt rather empty.That changed when the grandchildren came along.There is nothing like grands to make you feel young again.My kids also ask me for advice which they never did when they were home.All of a sudden I have become wise.So all in all it is a good thing.
