Getting a job sucks – creating one inspires!
I guess you know enough about me to know that I’ve never worked for anyone else. Call me selfish, but for me, I always had to be in charge of my own destiny. But it’s really not me that’s important – it’s what I can do for others that really matters to me.
Which brings me to this question: Why is formal education designed to empower you to get a job?
We all know that wealth is created – broadly speaking – by entrepreneurs: the guys that ‘create’ jobs. We also know that more and more people looking for jobs is not the way out of this recession.
So my question is: why doesn’t school and university teach us how to create jobs, instead of teaching us how to get jobs?
Surely, if that were to happen, we’d ultimately all be better off!
