attitude of a student #Josh

The background was localSys, focus@GTD i.e. productivity ….

In my final catch-up, I singled out distraction as the first factor. It was something easy to identify. I was distracted by interview preparation, nutritional research, housing market research, …. but that distraction was not a key factor.

I said another side factor was raw memory capacity — lots of facts to remember and other people seem to show better retention.

I also said I didn’t get a project where I could exceed expectation and gain momentum.

Boss suggested that I lost motivation. Then he suggested — “Take the attitude of a student. Be willing to learn and to take on anything.”

By “student” he didn’t mean a fresh grad or an intern, a desire for new knowledge.
