The main value of good education
I have fancy degrees on my resume — from Cambridge and Harvard — and I failed miserably many times. On the academic side, nothing I ever learned at Cambridge or Harvard was useful. Well, I gained the overall ability to figure things out but no specific knowledge was ever useful.
In fact, my Harvard MBA messed me up somewhat. You get big ideas and ideals, you dream big, and then you crash because your ideas are actually shit, or because dreaming big is not enough for success.
