You'll never hear me telling a student that grades don't matter, or that they shouldn't go to college or graduate school or even that they shouldn't become insurance salesmen. After all, my father is an insurance salesman precisely because it allows him to do the things he enjoys most, both at work and everywhere else. But I hope my students don't miss out on their experiences because they think they only matter as a means to an end. Don't dedicate your life to something unless the process is just as enjoyable as the potential outcome.
