How can I improve my cooking skills? I never thought I would ask myself this question. But after finishing university, I realised I had no idea how to feed myself.
University teaches us that focusing on achievements is a good thing. This mindset isn’t beneficial in the long term, though, as it leaves you dependent on others to shore up your own ego. If you really want to be happy, you need to seek motivation from a more personal source: yourself.
What makes something good or bad? How do we determine right from wrong when there are so many different opinions on the topic?
When I tell people I went to Cambridge, the reaction normally goes something like this: “Wow, you must be like a super genius or something!” Comments like these, while a boost to the ego, always make me wince inwardly.
