@ T.
Successful? I never give it a thought. What I am, is contented, I neither want nor need more than we already have.

Grow old disgracefully young man.

Funny but I was glancing at everyone's response and thinking that folk's read the op ed piece and didn't actually take the time to consider what the PROFESSOR was saying. INSTEAD they took the BAIT so neatly placed before them. This piece is very similar to the one I posted about grades, in fact the same except that I left out the race baiting portion. Read the responses and you'll have to conclude that the professor, nailed this, and folk's here got sucked into the agenda for race baiting.
Lechy, I wouldn't and don't evaluate myself on that level. I look forward to new opportunities each day, and as such have what I need. That is neither success or failure, or it could be either.
It makes little sense to pat yourself on the back, or beat yourself up over vague terminology. How about you?


No it isn't the same thing.

Without the hard work, there is nothing to satisfy the soul. I guess that some people CAN find a kind of satisfaction in theft, cheating people/the system, and begging. But teaching them that it is OK doesn't make much sense for society in general.
I can't seem to win the lottery. I think I have used up all of my good luck riding motorcycles.

Herb, you just AGREED with her AGAIN!
She didn't say don't work hard, she said get rid of merit based incentives. You know, "everyone gets a trophy"?
So what's there to disagree with since you've bashed that practice loads of times?

No, I didn't agree with her. She says that teaching that the way to success is hard work is wrong. No matter what a person does, unless they are thieves, cheats or beggars, it takes hard work to be successful. Teaching otherwise is making the deadbeats. And that is what is wrong with the "participation trophy" idea.

Your readding comprehension is sorely lacking.

Herb, no she didn't. Read it again SLOOOOWLY. This time read ALL of her explanation, and not what you want her to say.
