Leaning to Learning

It still seems that skills that others highlight, like Professionalism, rely on experience to some extent. After all, if you don't know what you're doing, however you apply yourself, the result will fall short.

Another skill, mentioned by the same source, is Learning and they mean here the habit of continuing to learn even when you're the head of Gilead Sciences. I think I took you through my schooling when I was first blogging, before Drink it Black specialised in comic books.
Suffice to say, I've always taken for granted that it was good to have early instruction in Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and English (or, presumably, Spanish if you grew up in San Salvador.) whether you become a clinician or a surveyor. I've valued the exposure to Biology and Human Biology for what seems like important knowledge to have, and I appreciate getting enough Physics and Chemistry to realise that I didn't have the smarts on inclination to specialise in those areas, whatever their intrinsic worth. Though being miserable at calculus did stall my entry into tertiary study, not because they wouldn't let me in but because I'd convinced myself that some formal theory was too hard for me.

Now a course in horticulture may equip you for growing hibiscus commercially, an apprenticeship prepare you for doing more than changing an oil filter, the mentorship of father or uncle to learn how to sell traps. Formal education is considered as, if not more, important than practical experience in the field in many professions although it is of a muchness since you won't gained that experience unless you have the qualifications.
