Here's Why Some C Students Are More Successful In Life Than A Graders
Engineering students are often guilty of being grade-conscious more than any other discipline. And that's really not our fault either. It's what we have been taught all our lives. Not only do our grades reflect what we are capable of they also show prospective employers that we can sit down and get the work done on time. And yet we have all come across those geniuses who know a lot even without spending hours and hours poring over books. These geniuses never care about their grades but still somehow seem to make it through all their classes.
As you all graduate, in a few years time you seem to realize that those smart people who barely made it though with C grades are actually doing much better in their careers than the A graders. This goes against everything we have ever been taught. How does a person who never put in all their time into studying for the future get to be successful? Go to the next page to find out. The secret might just help shape your entire future.
#2 Developing Your Socialization Skills
The simple reason why these people succeed is that they aren't afraid of trying something different just because their grades will be affected. Companies are looking for people who can think outside the box and come up with flexible ideas on the go. On the other hand an A grade student lets his studies take over his entire life. Missing parties and events to focus on our studies is a common occurrence. Doing so takes away an opportunity to socialize and work on our communication skills, all of this adds up to negative consequences for us when we go looking for a job or have to commercialize our projects.
The successful C-grade students are used to living their life on the edge, they have the ability to make their personality and professional skills eclipse their mediocre grades.Many of the beloved presidents, billionaire CEOs and inventors have been dropouts or have lower average grades in college. Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Holmes, all of these revolutionary CEOs and researchers have dropped out of university to pursue their goals.
Of course all of this doesn't mean that grades can be completely ignored. It merely means that other skills are just as important as grades. How do we develop other skills while still maintaining good scores? Go to the next and final page to find out.
#1 Don't Let Your Grades Define You
Academia may take us up to a certain point but never remain in an illusion that the numbers alone will define you and get you your dream job or business. Students are under the misconception that this is the time that defines our entire life. If we don't sacrifice everything today for our studies we will not be happy tomorrow. Instead what we should do is study when we have to, but also explore the world, try to enjoy and communicate with people.
In the words of the famous astrophysicist Neil deGrass Tyson,"Your grades, whatever is your GPA, rapidly becomes irrelevant in your life. I cannot begin to impress upon you how irrelevant it becomes.Because in life, they aren't going to ask you your GPA....If a GPA means anything, it's what you were in that moment - and it so does not define you for the rest of your life."
Stop letting a bunch of numbers and papers define who you are. You are what you make of yourself. Never stop learning and experiencing new things, they are most important things in anyone's life.
