How to Get a Real Education: Forget art history and calculus. Most students need to learn how to run a business, says Scott Adams. (WSJ)

Meanwhile, some of my peers were taking courses in art history so they’d be prepared to remember what art looked like just in case anyone asked…To succeed, first you must do something. And if that doesn’t work, which can be 90% of the time, do something else. Luck finds the doers. Readers of the Journal will find this point obvious. It’s not obvious to a teenager.

This essay by Scott Adams could be a shameless plug for my alma mater. The quote I selected fits a theme as well. The best advice he offers though is in respect to failure which makes me think of this quote from Walt Disney.

Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
—Walt Disney
