A few examples:
- Colin Powell was merely an OK student, but he grew up in a home filled with books. As a young man, he read constantly.
- Jack London, the best-selling author of his day, took his education at public libraries. He tried college, but found it dull.
- Thomas Edison was a lousy student but followed his passion and grew totally absorbed in his work as an inventor. He often slept in his lab.
- The Wright brothers hated school and sought out their own education. German inventor Otto Lilienthal became their key inspiration on glider technology.
- Benjamin Franklin quit school at age 10 and set up a program of self-education, including science, philosophy and foreign languages.
Any way you do it, keep educational options open for yourself and your team.
