What Do Highly Successful People Have In Common? Can Engineers Learn?

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong, Ir., M.Eng, ChFC, PhD. Posted in Problems of Engineers

Engineers are the backbone of a successful nation, do we all engineers agree? Without engineers, can a country have a good infrastructures, productive factories, luxury office buildings, etc???? So, why are engineers earning much less compared to economist, doctors, lawyers, and other professional? Why do we want to go through a bidding that force us, engineers, fight against one another? Let’s first read the article about what do highly successful people have in common…

  1. They Work Hard! Yes, They Play Hard, Too! 
    They get up early, they rarely complain, they expect performance from others, but they expect extraordinary performance from themselves. Repeated, high-level success starts with recognition that hard work pays off.
  2. They Are Incredibly Curious And Eager To Learn
    They study, ask questions and read – constantly. An interesting point, however: While most of them did well in school, the difference is that they apply or take advantage of what they learn. Repeated success is not about memorizing facts, it’s about being able to take information and create, build, or apply it in new and important ways. Successful people want to learn everything about everything!
