Stop Complaining

I fought really hard to get to where I am today – I can do better but what I am trying to say is that ‘STOP COMPLAINING!’

Experience says a lot about you, you know. In fact, I would bet all my money onrepparttar fact that people who learn things hands-on is FAR FAR better than those who got their degrees in college.

This is an experience that I would like to share with all of you. I have a client whose graphic designer went on maternity leave. So, she needed someone to dorepparttar 139737 work while she was away. I didrepparttar 139738 stuff for them, no complaints and they paid on time. However, whenrepparttar 139739 graphic designer came back, she had problems with my files. At first, I thought it was my problem….that I didn’t configure or saverepparttar 139740 files properly for her to continue with her work. Turns out, I had to spend a lot of time onrepparttar 139741 phone and through email teaching her how to do some basic functions usingrepparttar 139742 same program that we use! The same program and yet I knew more than her? I couldn’t believe it, really. She’srepparttar 139743 one withrepparttar 139744 graphic design and art degree, while I amrepparttar 139745 one with a law degree…..I still have trouble understanding this. Didn’t they teach those stuff to her in school or college? What inrepparttar 139746 world did she learn to do in school? And…..

….thank goodness I didn’t waste my time and money to get a degree! If I did, I bet you I would have regressed!

My point is this: you don’t need a piece of paper to prove your abilities and worth. You need only one thing,repparttar 139747 need,repparttar 139748 desire,repparttar 139749 want,repparttar 139750 passion for it! If you think you have it, I am VERY sure you can go as far or further than those who are qualified. So, don’t just sit there and whine – go do something!
