Like the Flowing River

Paulo Coelho - Like the Flowing RiverAm inceput sa citesc aceasta care scrisa de Paulo Coelho care e de fapt o adunatura de articole scrie de el incepand cu anul 1995.

O sa rescriu niste chestii care mi s-au parut interesante deci… :)

In the case of people who live in the town, they all believe that they must have a university degree, get married, have children, make sure that their children get a degree too, and so on and so on. No one asks themselves: “Could I do something different?”

I remember that my barber worked day and night so that his daughter could finish her sociology degree. She finally graduated and, after knocking on many doors, found work as a secretary at a cement works. Yet my barber still used to say very proudly: “My daughter’s got a degree.”

Most of my friends, and most of my friends’ children, also have degrees. That doesn’t mean that they’ve managed to find the kind of work they wanted. Not at all. They went to university because someone, at a time when universities were important, said that, in order to rise in the world, you had to have a degree. (…) Doctors, engineers, scientists, and lawyers need to go to university, but does everyone? I’ll let these lines by Robert Frost provide the answer:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Deci nu sunt singurul care crede ca n-are de ce sa faca o facultate in ziua de azi si ca nu i se potriveste nicio facultate. Thanks dude!

Si un mic sfat pentru toti cei ce folosesc mailul in exces… amintiti-va ca sunteti facuti si voi din carne si oase:

Looking at me hard, he concluded: “Meetings. That was the mistake I made with you. Instead of just sending e-mails, I should have shown you that I’m made of flesh and blood. Once, when I failed to get a reply from a particular politician, I went and knocked on his door, and he said to me: “If you want something, you need to look the other person in the eye.” Ever since then, that’s what I’ve done, and I’ve had nothing but good results. You can have at your disposal all the means of communication in the world, but nothing, absolutely nothing, can replace looking someone in the eye.”

Si ultima chestie interesanta pe ziua de azi:

Even when a friend does something you do not like, he continues to be your friend.

Any action committed in anger is an action doomed to failure.
