Make It a Lifetime Job
Spoken column, 70th Anniversary, NUFFIC, The Hague, 30 November 2022
When I was a student, I learned some lessons.
I am passing them on:
Enjoy life and friends.
Choose subjects and courses which feed your curiosity.
Follow courses given by the best teachers, who inspire you. Also, when they are difficult!
Look beyond your bubble
Look across national frontiers
Learn to understand people with different background, different cultures and traditions.
Listen to them!
Question the answers which you get and don’t give up
Read books, not Internet
Follow more than one study
Visit more than one school.
Doubt your own wisdom
After your studies, don’t choose a job to earn money or to get a career.
Follow a professional path which makes you happy.
Make it a lifetime job.
