Matt Damon, Why I Hate College, and The Secret to Success

The pressure to attend college – and the idea that you can’t be successful unless you do – is just plain wrong. Graduating from college isn’t a one-way ticket to success anymore. You have to focus on self-education, whether you go to college or not. And the people who know this are the people who come out on top.

In this video, you’ll learn what mistakes to avoid and what you can do to ensure that you come out on top.

After you watch the video, I have a question for you. Who is one informal teacher in your personal learning network? What have they taught you that directly benefited you? Leave a comment on the blog post here:

  1. I findMr. Halpern presentation easy to tune out. Needs to vary his speaking speed and tone a bit more to get me interested.

  2. I would say go to community college and from there you can decide if you want to transfer to university. But at the same time there are people who are so sick of this school system.

  3. Video games actually helped me a lot to find out my passions in history and economics. Especially strategy games. I'd say those are my informal teachers.

  4. YOU CAN GO TO THE LIBRARY, CHOOSE A BOOK, AND LEARN FROM IT! THAT'S WHAT YOU DO IN COLLEGE! BUT IN THE LIBRARY, YOU DON'T PAY A LOT AND LOT OF MONEY!

  5. My informal teacher is Justice Ekhaguere. He has taught me more on the importance of developing good habits than high school has taught me the art of procrastination. In his new book he just put out on Amazon "The Red Pill" explains everything! It's shown me how much I can take advantage of the time in my day. Now I workout every single day, twice a day. I changed my diet to only eat healthy foods and drink more water, and also read 6 different books on success, goal setting, financial education, memory, and more everyday as well. Now I have the habit of doing all these things without even knowing it just by "showing up" to these habits everyday. This book is key and I believe every one should invest THIER time to reading this book, if you're really about that life. On Amazon, The Red Pill

  6. tHE prime prob with college is it is still preaching what it changes to in the 60's – feminism and Marxism.
    But they have terribly failed us

  7. A close electrical engineer friend of mines taught me how to fabricate electrical cables. I now know how to deal with high voltage cable lines in fact I sometimes repair them on my spare time~!

  8. I gotta brag on Pastor Danjuma Gibson. He has taught me the importance and impact of biblical literacy. "The way you think about God shapes the way you treat people."

    This means that whatever you view as The Ultimate, whether that is God or even another person you admire, you model their traits, hoping to create the same reaction in your life. And when your view of God is inaccurate, you risk modeling your behavior after that faulty image, potentially bringing havoc to those around you.
