I have been reading this book and I’m learning some stuffs I’d like to share. The question was asked, “Would you choose to be a Big Fish in a Small Pond or a Little Fish in a Big Pond?”
Well, it spoke a lot about how brilliant students in a prestigious university or top university can become so discouraged that they seem not able to compete with the top students no matter how much they tried. It seems to me that most companies choose graduates from prestigious universities over other schools simply because they’re the top schools – without examining the intangibles.
It also shared how the Impressionists created a whole new world in the world of art. Mainly, the book is opening a whole new world of thinking – using your seeming disadvantages for your advantages, creating a new rule which a man can live for – without the standards of the world affecting your worldview. He shared this beautiful quote. May we find ourselves unreasonable enough to create a new process, idea, way of living, and a lifestyle that makes this world a better place – leaving a legacy for the next generation to follow.
