Боловсролын философи

Хэрэв Хятадад 1 сая хүн цөмийн физик судлаж, тооноос чанарт шилжих хуулийн гайхамшигийг бидэнд харуулах гэж байгаа бол --- бид дэлхийн боловсролын системийн түүхэнд урд хожид хийгдэж байгаагүй агуу амбицтай, цоо шинэ Боловсролын аргачлалын бий болгож --- ердөө 5000 хүнийг цөмийн физикт дайчлаад л Хятадаас 2 дахин их Нобелийн шагнал авах төвшинд БҮТЭЭМЖИЙГ аваачих ёстой.

БҮТЭЭМЖ бол Эдийн засгийн хамгийн анхдагч асуудал. Эрэлт нийлүүлэлтийн хуулиас өмнө Бүтээмж байдаг.

Миний өнөөдөр ярьсан зүйлс бол зөвхөн Эдийн засгийн асуудал.

Эдийн засгийн сургуульд ийм л асуудлыг зааж, яаж шийдэх гарцыг буюу цоо шинэ мэдлэгийг бий болгож чадах эдийн засагчдийг бэлдэж төгсгөх ёстой. Эрэлт нийлүүлэлтийн хуулийг харин интернэтээс унших ёстой байхаа.

Stubborn Entrepreneurs

In the face of everybody is telling them they are wrong. Let's take Google. You see these stubborn entrepreneurs, even in the face of guy who gave them the money saying "Do it this way, you are wrong." And they say "No, you are wrong, my vision is right, screw you." They end making the most money.
...
I think a lot of VCs, unfortunately say, "This is hot sector, we need to fund a company in that sector." So they do. The CEO behaves almost like he is an employee of the VC. The best founders I have seen, they do not care about any of that stuff. They are just pursuing their vision with a relentless abandon.

Always Learning...

WHAT WERE THE TRAITS OF THE WEAK PROGRAMMERS YOU’VE SEEN OVER YOUR CAREER?
That’s an easy one—lack of curiosity. They were so satisfied with the work that they were doing was good enough (without an understanding of what ‘good’ was) that they didn’t push themselves.
I’m much more impressed with people that are always learning. The brilliant programmers I’ve been around are always learning.
You see so many people get into one language and spend their entire career in that language, and as a result aren’t that great as programmers.

DO YOU FEEL THAT THE PAIN A PROGRAMMER GOES THROUGH IN LEARNING A LANGUAGE CONTRIBUTES TO THIS UNHEALTHY ATTACHMENT TO USING ONLY ONE LANGUAGE?
My advice to programmers to avoid this trap is to learn lots of different languages. We’re in sort of a language renaissance right now and there are a ton of brilliant languages to learn from.
To learn new languages takes nights and weekends outside of work, and that’s a commitment. The great programmers are the people that are constantly picking a project and diving into it, learning a language that way.

You gotta know what that feels like in your stomach...

"You gotta know what it feels like to be up at night, worried about a problem. You gotta know what that feels like in your stomach," Carter says. "Getting terrible sound at clubs, playing to audiences that heckle, to venues that are half empty, so you know how to adjust to it. "Resilience, he says, isn't something he can teach them. Everyone has to experience their own Eve, their own Gaga. Only then you do know how to get back up.

The Alchemist

Paulo Coelho-ийн бичсэн The Alchemist гээд ном байх. Амьдрал хэмээх тахир муруй, адармаатай, гунигтай гутралтай, басхүү баяр бахдал, амжилт ололт, эрсдлээр дүүрэн сүлэлдсэн гайхамшгийг хоньчин хүү Сантиогогийн эрлээр уран сайхан дүрсэлжээ. Заримдаа хорвоод яг яах гэж мэндэлсэн болох, яг юу хүсээд байгаагаа эс мэдэх, утгагүй, урамгүй мөчүүд хэн бүхэнд бишгүй л тохиох. Яг тэр үедээ барьж аваад уншчихад зэгсэн сайхан засал авахаар... Хувийн тэмдэглэл болгож уг номоос хэдэн өгүүлбэр оруулъя.


I ask myself: are defeats necessary?
Well, necessary or not, they happen. When we first begin fighting for our dream, we have no experience and make many mistakes. The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and get up to eight times.
. . .
But if you believe yourself worthy of the thing you fought so hard to get, then you become an instrument of God, you help the Soul of the World, and you understand why you are here.
. . .
"What's the world's greatest lie?" the boy asked, completely surprised.
"It's this: that a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That's the world's greatest lie."
. . .
And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
. . .
"Treasure is uncovered by the force of flowing water, and it is buried by the same currents," said the old man.
. . .
"'Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you,' said the wisest of wise men. 'The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never forget the drops of oil on the spoon.'"
. . .
He had not a cent in his pocket, but he had faith.
. . .
We are afraid of losing what we have, whether it's our life or our possessions and property. But this fear evaporates when we understand that our life stories and the history of the world were written by the same hand.
. . .
Eat when it's time to eat. And move along when it's time to move along.
. . .
Because, when you know that language, it's easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you, whether it's in the middle of the desert or in some great city. And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world.
. . .
Life attracts life.
. . .
"I'm a woman of desert," she said, averting her face. "But above all, I'm a woman."
. . .
If what one finds is made of pure matter, it will never spoil. And one can always come back. If what you had found was only a moment of light, like the explosion of a star, you would find nothing on your return.
. . .
You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it's better to listen to what it has to say. That way, you'll never have to fear an unanticipated blow.
. . .
Every search begins with beginners's luck. And every search ends with victor's being severely tested.
. . .
The darkest hour of the night came just before the dawn.
. . .
Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.
. . .
