“My Dad says education is important, but although teachers do a wonderful job, some of the things they have to teach us in school don’t help much in later life.
One of Dad’s mentors Mr Jim Rohn once said, ‘Formal education will make you a living, but self-education will make you a fortune’. If that’s the case I think we all need to start self-educating ourselves from an early age”.
A father was overheard teaching giving his teenage son some advice about education.
Father: You must study hard, son.
Father: Well, so that you can go to the university someday.
Son: For what?
Father: So you can earn a degree and then go out to the world with a good job.
Son: Why would I need a good job?
Father: So you’ll make more money.
Son: If education is all about making money, I might as well learn to make it now.
