This goes to all of you students out there. And to others, of course if you are willing to grow.
So here we go, I will put some points which I find crucial for every student’s learning period and future.
There are only TWO THINGS you need to learn at every university and those things alone will prepare you for your future professional career as well as for life:
1 LEARN TO THINK! QUESTION EVERYTHING! Only your curiosity will give you those answers you are looking for. Remember your professors can NOT give you all the answers. They are just humans like you. There even might be some questions no one ever opened but you. Those questions are for you to find the answers to.
2. DO NOT LEARN BY HEART!
That is not the point and there is no use if you learned some 500 pages book by heart. Yes, you will get yourself good marks but you will forget the whole book in a 2-3 months period. So, that is not very useful thing in the life, do you agree?
Instead, LEARN WHERE TO FIND THE KNOWLEDGE YOU NEED AT THE EXACT MOMENT YOU NEED IT!
I cannot stress this enough!!!
Learn which sources are valid and useful, talking about books and the internet. University period, those 4-5-6 years are just the right time to practice this.
What i noticed is that many students are unable to find valid sources so they learn from false ones not even knowing the damage they do to themselves and society around them. Even here, people often question some obvious facts which they can check online in a blink of an eye. I mean, you are obviously online being here, right? Why not simply google some facts instead of claiming the opposite and making a fool out of yourself. You don't need people to laugh at you, ok? DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!
Please do just those 2 things mentioned and I promise you they will prepare you for your future careers and life in general.
