Well, the point is simple- in my senior year, I was already working in the
computer center at city hall, and when I left that job, I went right into fixing
video games and digital hardware (both of which were new on the consumer
market). After a couple of years in electronics based jobs, I then went
directly into aerospace. I took my working future seriously.
I made certain that people could understand me and that I understood them.
I made a rational choice about how I was going to earn a living. Most of my
classmates were pumping gas or flipping hamburgers when they found work. Even
ten years later they seemed to be right in the same places, but they spent their
time partying and raising hell.
My son went straight from high school to college, but he also went directly
into a good job, building exhibits and museum quality hardware. It was
definitely due to the time I spent with him showing him how to gain satisfaction
from honest work, and how to use tools and to think.
If people had a little more direction then we would not see so many with no
jobs- there is always work for you if you know what to do. And the lack of a
job market will not stand in your way if you make your own job. I have always
managed to do it somehow, and have never drawn welfare. Training and ambition
will win every time. Your mind is your most powerful tool and if you invest
your time with your children when they are young, you will find that they have
skills you did not imagine.
My two daughters are now 8 and 13 and they are both excellent artists and
interested in robotics, insects, chemistry, and other things too numerous to
list. I will bet serious money that they will leave school and be right in the
job market, whether through a actual job or through a job that they create.
They will have the ability to make a living by providing goods or services that
are in demand, and I will not have to worry about them being a burden on (or a
threat to) society.
