A lot has been going on in my life, and as a result I have been absent.
Nonetheless, let me recount my conversation with a professor/ mentor I look up to.
That moment when you meet a professor you haven’t seen in a while and you both start chatting. He questions you:
Prof: Longtime, what have you been up to?
Me: I just finished school.
Prof: again? Haven’t you been at it for a while now?
Me: Yes, I was part-time and recently finished.
Prof: So what’s next?
Me: Thinking, perhaps continue school and look for a better job.
Prof: nice, courage and best wishes.
Me: How about you? Supervising lots of thesis this year?
Prof: Yes, I have been at it for a while, and teaching only one seminar course.
Me: It’s obvious you are the expert, so it’s no doubt.
Prof: “I didn’t get to where I am by chance but by hard work, I mean hard work”.
Then he looks at me and repeats the words “hard work and discipline”.(As a result, I couldn’t help but think about my life).
Me: Thank you for the reminder and encouragement.
Prof: Enjoy your day!
Me: Thanks and same to you.
On my way home, I couldn’t help but reflect over His words about hard work and discipline.
It was also a good reminder not to let people define me by telling me what I can or can’t do.
One day I will be like you😀, wait : I will continuously be the best ME ever.
