TDot’s Tips: How to Succeed at Life

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on Feb 15, 2011 in TDot's Tips | Subscribe

Yes, I realize the post title is pretentious — I had to get your attention somehow. ((And I’d like to point out this is my 3rd post in 3 days, for the first time since early January :beatup: )) :P

Last week I mentioned that I’d have a column going live over at Kaplan’s Beyond Hearsay blawg. It got posted today, and you can check it out at this URL.

Here’s a snippet from the opening:

Do you remember that person in undergrad who always declined going out to dinner because they had homework to do? Who always walked around with a venti nonfat organic quintuple shot caffè macchiato frapp-o-death because they needed the caffeine to balance out repeated all-nighters? The one who had a nervous breakdown when grades were released because the lone A- they got in Über-Advanced Multivariable Calculus IV hurt their otherwise flawless GPA?

Most of us had at least one classmate in that category, likely several (and if you don’t remember anyone like that, he or she might have been you).

But think about where those people are today. Do you think they’re successful? Do *they* think they’re successful? And more importantly, are they enjoying their lives, successful or otherwise? Odds are good that the answer to at least one of these questions is “no.”

Be forewarned:  Beyond Hearsay is an almost-emoticon-free zone. And they like proper grammar and syntax :surprised:

So I tried to make up for my lack of graphics and contractions and run-on sentences by coming up with at least moderately-compelling content ;) I promise you there’s good stuff in the rest of that post, but you’ll have to head over to Beyond Hearsay to read it :)

Have a great night y’all! :D
