Reading Education of Millionaires by Michael Ellsberg


The option of not being a starving artist of having a semi-predictable source of income so that some funds can be alloted for growth through testing and experiments.

And the difference between academic smarts and street smarts. And the lack of streetsmartness that most academically smart people consciously choose. And the possbility of being academically smart and at the same time street smart :)

"A man's real education begins after he has left school. True education is gained through the discipline
of life… A man may be very learned and useless… Merely gathering knowledge may be the most useless
work a man can do. What can you do to help and heal the world? That is the educational test. If a man
can hold up his own end, he counts for one. If he could help ten or a hundred or a thousand other men
hold up their ends, he counts for more… When a man is a master of his own sphere, whatever it may be,
he has won his degree -he has entered the ream of wisdom" - Henry Ford
