Do your Homework - Literally
There is no such thing as luck.
"Luck occurs at the moment that opportunity meets preparedness"
There is no replacement to doing the work, putting in the time, turning over the stones on the journey of discovery. There is no secret pill. This applies to students, adults, career seekers and all others.
Where do I go for Discovery?
Go everywhere you can go on the journey of discovery. But definitely go to see things in action. Don't ask your teacher what its like to fly a plane, go to the airport, speak to the ground crews, speak to the pilots, speak to the air traffic control operators. Learn all you can about the experience. Learn to ask the right questions. "What did you do to get here?" What education did you pursue? What was it that helped you know that you wanted to do this? Can I get involved to find out more about this endeavour?
