Education is important. Education is useful. But, getting a degree and not making a difference is worthless.
For many jobs today, having a degree is just a box that needs to be checked. They don't care what your GPA was. They don't care what group you were in or what sport you played.
They care about the difference you're able to make.
Are you able to take the information in your head and turn it into positive results?
So get a degree, get 10,000 degrees, but never forget that your degree doesn't matter if you don't make a difference.
