"look at all your options and choose the most challenging one. If it scares you, like you think maybe you won't be up to the challenge, you're on the right track and should go for it."
"My classes were just fine, I did learn a lot, but I got a job where they said "go learn how to administer unix boxes, there's some oreilly books on the topic that are good. ask for help if you need it" and a few months later, out of pure fear, I'd learned how to do that. I learned Perl, I learned all kinds of stuff about how unix works, and the approach they threw me into was one where you build confidence in teaching yourself stuff. I've been doing that ever since. Heck, for the last two hours tonight I've been reading a tutorial for R because it sounds cool and maybe I can use it sometime. Seriously, if you have this kind of curiosity and learn well on your own, this is a good direction."
