So this week was the beginning of my new term, which means I have to start socializing with people for real again. It's not that bad though, since they are a lot more accepting than most 'friends' I had back on my bachelor degree even though they were more or less on the same age as mine. And not to mention no one's going to steal my girlfriend this time, especially when she doesn't really exist.
Anyway the first day of the term, which was last Tuesday, started with a subject called 'Innovation and Enterpreneurship', a topic that sounds really interesting and useful for real life at the same time, because I like the idea about innovations and would love to know how someone can be an effective enterpreneur.
However the excitement got killed pretty soon because after about half an hour of paying attention, the facilitator started babbling random stuffs, and at one point he laughed out loud at his own story and every single one of us just stared at him; some forced a weak smile.
At least his bad joke and magic trick got us excited
The second day, which was yesterday, got us to a subject called 'Thought Leadership', a topic that sounds like it was about how Professor Xavier started the mutant academy and train the X-Men, which would be so damn awesome if that's what it was.
Turns out it was about the concept of when a leader has become recognized by their ability within a specialized field and their expertise would be the one to be sought for whenever the said field comes to attention. It's like you will most likely go for a really good attorney whose ability is so well known that you would have no trouble trusting that person.
Being a beautiful Russian is also a plus side
But I do learn several things from those two classes, even though I had a bad start. The first is the spirit of enterpreneur, the things that separates normal people and so-called businessmen to real enterpreneur. One of which is to see a problem with clear mind, make do with whatever you have and try to make something out of it.
Basically, it's a concept of creativity, effectiveness, and innovation thrown together, which is why people with enterpreneur spirits manages to survive a lot better than those who are simply doing things just to reach profits. Which would also explains why there are people who failed enchanting their +8 weapons to the point that it finally broke after spending thousands of gold, yet still able to survive and regained their money back even more than before.
"You're getting there, don't give up!"
The second is the concept of "Good leaders will hire people smarter than they are", this is something quite controversial for a lot of companies, especially in state owned companies. This is actually a good concept because smart people gets the job done a lot faster, and sometimes they would be able to handle the ones that even the leader can't do by himself. Especially due to the fact that being a leader of an organization/company doesn't mean that you should be able to handle everything by yourself, it's easier to just leave some problems to the ones who understand them better.
The problem is that the people who would hire new employees sometimes think that if the person they're hiring is smarter than they are, there is a possibility that they would jeopardize their position within the company, so they decided to go for the ones that are easier to be controlled and pressure their ambition to rise to the top.
Shit, this might be the main reason why I can't get a job.
