Agostino’s Insights on Millennials and How To Reach Your Full Potential
- Agostino did not come from an entrepreneurial family.
- He pursued multiple fields, such as mechanical engineering and computer science.
- Losing interest in his previous fields, he became fascinated in history. Hence, he started his career as a professor and research in university by 2000.
Implications of the Golden Rush Evolution
- The fourth and current industrial revolution is characterized by a high rate of technological advancements that occurred in a short amount of time.
- There is a heavy emphasis on the use of the internet and artificial intelligence.
- New jobs are now emerging, but universities are not yet prepared to teach these to students.
Facing the Evolution: Three Assets
- First, Savoir Faire (Knowing How to Do) – learning what you can in university
- Second, Savoir Vivre (Knowing How to Live) – focusing on networking to position yourself in your job market
- Third, Savoir Dire (Knowing How to Be) – having the self-awareness to realize your passion
Hard Skills vs Soft Skills
- Hard skills are what you learn within the university, like medicine and engineering. These are going to be quickly outdated
- On the other hand, soft skills focus on relating to others, such as honesty and kindness. These will help us adapt to the changes brought by the golden rush evolution.
- Soft skills, despite their importance, are often forgotten, especially in the age of social media.
Four Steps to Reach Your Full Potential:
- Search for your “Why.”
- “Why will you do what you want to do?”
- Find your passions.
- Try everything you can do (e.g., gain experience, work for someone you admire).
- Plan for your goals.
- Formulate a time and action plan to develop your path to reach your goals.
- Take action.
- The most crucial step is to start walking.
- Taking action also entails growth and improvement.
- Refrain from overthinking whether your plan is good enough.
- Be consistent.
- A plan without consistency does not work.
- Being consistent means putting in the same amount of effort and following through with your plans.
Habits You Need to Achieve Excellence
- Be kind.
- Enjoy everyday life.
- Work on your uniqueness.
- Create daily habits.
- Believe in what you do.
