This post is like a rorschach test for the Medium community. It’s scary to think 1.3k people recommended the post without commenting on its inconsistencies. About 80% of the commenters were enraged. Does that mean approximately 80% of the post should have been ignored (as suggested by Francesco Varrato)?
For all the under 30 readers, take heed: ignoring things you deem worthless can be a huge mistake. Sometimes the real lesson in school or at a job is to develop the discipline and toughness required to do boring, unnecessary tasks. It is only through developing these character traits that you will have the courage and strength to achieve your greatest goals when the going gets tough. And trust me, the higher your goal, the tougher it will be to reach the summit.
