Some other days, you will realise you have no idea what your peers want, despite what they are telling you. But you will get better at navigating professional relationships, provided you keep an open mind while engaging with people’
Nigam Nuggehalli writes, “Schools and universities have a set of goals identified for you already: ace exams, win debates, write prize winning essays. You develop a personal plan for it based on your interests and motivations. Except that in the real world you almost never pursue individual goals”
Nigam Nuggehalli writes: I think being a professional means a certain set of attitudes. The basic element has to do with pride, pride in the work one is asked to do, whether big or small, exciting or tedious.
