Did your education prepare you for your career or occupation?
Having a diverse education prepared me to avoid industry specific bullshit and have a more global and successful viewpoint
Has your education or career/occupation trajectory ever changed? How?
A little introspection...
To me, being successful means...
Not obsessing about "being successful", what a yawner question...
My definition of success has changed over time.
Sure, why not...
My greatest accomplishment to date and what I’ve learned from it
That I don't have to "learn" from anything...sometimes it's just the journey, not the destination...
My biggest mistake or regret so far and what I’ve learned from it
Not buying peninsula real estate...especially checkerboard easements in unencorporated areas...
An unexpected event that significantly changed my life and how it impacted me
The end of non- returnable soda bottles...didn't see that one coming
Something else I’d like to share
The cultural events- attended the Oban festival, University art street fairs, various protests and theater events, got sprayed by the Medfly choppers, remember the Cold War air raid siren tests and "the Cow" 5 pm horn...and donkeys pulling carts down Cowper..
