I've finished reading a book by James Whittaker entitled, How Google Tests Software.
I used to believe in this saying 100%. I realized now that it also has a flaw. This is applicable only to things that you, at the least, 80% like. If you take chances that you don't like, it might just be a reason to regret in the future. You'd "become the adult you don't' want to be". Therefore, this saying does not correlate to, "Take all the chances you can get".
This was presented during our Graduation Exam on October 3 year 2013 for our High Impact Presentation class. I am not the owner of the content of the speech. The objective is to only judge how well the message and goals were presented to the audience. The goal is to give a High Impact Presentation. At the end of the class, a Best Presenter was chosen. Guess who? Ehem! Ehem!... Thank you :)
I enjoyed the class very much. If you ever find one available, make sure to grab the opportunity and enroll.
I often wonder why reaching my dream is so difficult. Sometimes I just want to give up and find another dream that's easy. This quote hits the bone. You say, "it's cliche". I say, "it's very true".
