ʻO nā ʻōpio ʻimi holoholona me nā pū kī pū

Ua hewa wau i ka bashing ʻana i ka hana ʻana ma Indiana e like me ke kanaka hou. Ke manaʻo wau i ka hana hana, kiʻi wau i kahi kāne i nā uhi uhi e hana ana i kahi laina hui hālāwai hana monotonous e hana hou. ʻAʻole ʻokoʻa paha kaʻu ʻike mai nā ʻōpio i kēia mau lā.

ʻAʻole nā ​​hana a me nā loiloi nā huaʻōlelo hoihoi. He ʻelemakule lākou. Luhi lākou. He paʻakikī e kiʻi iā lākou i kekahi ala ʻē aʻe! ʻO ka ʻoiaʻiʻo ʻo ka hana ʻana a me nā loiloi kekahi mea akā luʻuluʻu. Hoʻohālikelike ka hana ʻana i ka hana wikiwiki, wikiwiki wikiwiki. Hoʻohālikelike ʻo Logistics i nā hiʻohiʻona lako polokalamu paʻakikī me nā ʻenehana e ulu ana e like me nā ʻōnaehana ʻike ʻāina.

ʻōpio7ʻO ka nīnau pehea e hoʻololi ai kahi mokuʻāina holoʻokoʻa i ke ala a ke aupuni, nā mākua a me nā keiki e noʻonoʻo ai iā ʻoe inā ʻaʻole ʻike ka poʻe he nui ʻoe i kou ʻano maoli? ʻOiaʻiʻo, nā hoʻokūkū kime, ke kālepa maʻamau i nā influencers e like me nā mea kālaiʻāina a me nā mea aʻo e kōkua. Akā pehea ʻoe e māka ai i ka poʻe āu e pono ai e hoʻopiha i nā haneli haneli o nā hana i kekahi mau makahiki? ʻO ia kahi nīnau i nīnau ʻia iaʻu i kēia ʻauinalā ... he aha ka hana?

Ma kahi mokuʻāina e like me Indiana, kahi i noho ai ka hubris o ke koleke 4 mau makahiki (ʻo ia ka mea a mākou e ʻike ai, ʻeā?), Pehea ʻoe e hoʻolalelale ai i nā kālena ʻōpio e kālepa ai i nā papahana a me nā koleke kalepa ʻo 2 makahiki? Manaʻo wau he manaʻo paukū ʻekolu ia:

  1. E hōʻoia i nā influencers e ʻike i ka ʻawaʻawa maoli o nā helu helu. ʻO ka hapa nui o nā haumāna e hoʻomaka ma nā kula ʻo 4 makahiki ʻaʻole hoʻopau i ko lākou kekelē. A o nā mea e paʻa nei i kā lākou kekelē laepua ... he pilikia nui ka poʻe i ka loaʻa ʻana o ka hana kūpono. ʻO kahi influencer e kamaʻilio i kā lākou haumāna C + i kahi papahana kekelē 4 ʻaʻole paha e hana iā lākou i kahi makemake. He pilau paʻakikī kēlā e ale!
  2. Hōʻoia i nā mākua e ʻike i nā manawa kūpono e kūkākūkā ai me kā lākou keiki. Ma kaʻu keiki kāne a he haumāna mediocre ʻo ia - no laila ke kīkēkē nei ka pūʻali koa i kona puka i kēlā me kēia lā. Ua hoʻomaka ʻo Bill ma IUPUI ma kahi a ua pua i kēia manawa i kahi nui hanohano i ka makemakika a me ka Physics. Ke hoʻomaka nei nō hoʻi ʻo ia e ʻumeʻume i nā haumana a hana e aʻo i nā haumāna ʻē aʻe ma ke Kulanui.

    ʻO kaʻu kuhi me kaʻu keiki ʻo kēia - inā ʻaʻohe o mākou kumuwaiwai no kāna kula, hiki iā ia ke kamaʻilio maʻalahi ʻia i ka pūʻali koa. He kūpuna wau a mihi ʻole i ka hoʻoholo - akā ʻaʻole wau i ʻike he mau koho kaʻu i kona mau makahiki. He mau koho kāna (a loaʻa)! Inā ʻaʻole i holo pono ka polokalamu kekelē 4, inā ʻo ia kahi prospect kula kālepa kūʻokoʻa (no ke aha e maikaʻi ʻole ai kēlā leo?). ʻAʻole naʻe wau a ʻike i kēlā.

  3. ʻO ke kī nui i kēlā me kēia ʻoihana marketing ka pahuhopu, ʻo ia iho. ʻO kēia kahi e kuʻi ai ka haʻalulu i ke alanui. ʻAʻohe oʻu manaʻo pehea kou hopena ʻana i nā influencers a me ka mākeke iā Māmā a me Pāpā ... inā ʻaʻole ʻoe e lawe i kēia mau keiki ma luna o ka moku, e holo pono ʻole ʻoe. No laila ma hea ʻoe e ʻike ai iā lākou? Facebook? ʻO Twitter Mobile? Pāʻani wikiō? Ma ke kula? Nā Pūʻulu ʻōpio?

ʻAe, loaʻa ʻoe iā lākou ma nā wahi āpau. Ua hana maikaʻi mākou i ke aʻo ʻana i kā mākou poʻe keiki e kūkulu i ko lākou ʻike ponoʻī, e noʻonoʻo ʻokoʻa, e loaʻa ka hauʻoli ... no laila ʻo ia wale nō kā lākou e hana nei. Hiki iā ʻoe ke loaʻa kaʻu kaikamahine lawe kiʻi a kaʻana like ʻana iā lākou. Ke hoʻāʻo nei ʻo Katie i nā wikiō me kāna kāmela Flip. A ʻoiaʻiʻo, ma Instant Messenger a me kāna kelepona paʻalima. I kekahi manawa, hui pū ʻo ia me kona mau hoaaloha a pāʻani Rock Band.

My keiki moʻomanaʻo (sporadically), aia ma Facebook a hui pū me kāna mau hoa mele ʻē aʻe ma MySpace. Ma waho o kēlā, e ʻike ʻoe iā ia ma kāna hangouts punahele, ʻO ke kīʻaha pī (ua kau ʻo ia iaʻu) a Hale Waffle… ʻAe, Hale Waffle.

He mau koho ko nā ʻōpio i kēia mau lā a ke paio nei lākou no ko lākou pilikino iho. Kakaʻikahi loa, inā kekahi, o nā hoaaloha a kaʻu keiki a me kaʻu kaikamahine e kipi nei e like me mākou i ka wā ʻōpio. Luku ʻia lākou. He mau mea pāʻani lākou. Loaʻa iā lākou ka Pūnaewele. Loaʻa iā lākou kekahi i kekahi. ʻAʻole makemake lākou i nā lama a hoʻokele ʻia paha. Makemake lākou i ka ʻōmaʻomaʻo. Makemake lākou e mālama i ka Honua… ʻo kēlā me kēia mea.

ʻO ka paʻi ʻana i ka ʻōpio i kēia mau lā i ʻoi aku ma mua o kekahi mau hana infiltration hoʻolālā maikaʻi o nā makahiki i hala. Hoʻomaopopo wau i ka wā e hana ai nā Nike āpau i kā lākou hightops hou loa i kahi kiʻi ʻoniʻoni e paʻi i nā kūʻai. I kēia mau lā, makemake nā keiki e ʻimi i nā kāmaʻa sneakers ʻaʻohe kanaka.

Inā ʻoe e alualu i nā ʻōpio, e aho ʻoe e lawe i kahi pū kī. Noho aupuni ʻana Google, Youtube, Flickr, Facebook (ʻelemakule paha ʻoe), Myspace, ke kahua mele, ke kahua kūʻai, nā pāʻani wikiō, nā kelepona paʻalima a me ka Coffee Shop a i ʻole ʻo Waffle House paha i kahi hoʻomaka maikaʻi!

ʻO kaʻu ʻōlelo aʻoaʻo he maʻalahi paha ia e hoʻolako i kahi no nā ʻōpio be ma mua o ka hele ma kahi a lākou e hele ai ua. ʻIke wau i ka mahalo o kā mākou poʻe keiki o nā hui ʻōpio a me ka Church kahi e hiki ai iā lākou ke kau pū, kamaʻilio, pāʻani i nā pāʻani wikiō, a haʻi ʻia i kahi leka maikaʻi. ʻAʻole lākou i hele mau no ka leka, akā hele mai kekahi no kekahi. ʻAʻole pono kēlā wahi i ka hana pōhaku a me ka puna, he wahi maikaʻi paha ia ma ka pūnaewele.

ʻO kou mau manaʻo? ʻO ke kiʻi a me kahi pou nui ma ke Ke kūʻai aku ʻōpio loaʻa ma ka moʻomanaʻo blog.

    Great post! Gives me more to think about, I’ve got a number of years before my two kids are teens, but I know it will fly by before I know it. I think one of the worst things we do is push kids into college when they’re really not ready for it. There are other options: military, trades, service organizations.

    Also, not everyone wants to be in an office or a lab all day. There’s many kids who have been chained to a desk for the past 13 years, who would rather be up and doing something other than typing. Manufacturing isn’t just for C students. I’ve known some brilliant people in trade jobs who would rather be up and doing something physical.

    It makes me think of Office Space where Peter is finally happy to be working on a cleanup crew instead of being in a cubicle.

      ʻO Michelle,

      You’re absolutely right and I hope I didn’t come across as stating that somehow these jobs were for below average students. My point is just the opposite – these jobs are both exciting, technologically advanced, lead to very well paying careers AND DON’T require a 4 year degree. Some of them don’t even require a 2 year!

      It’s really just an overlooked industry. Everyone thinks that to be successful you need a Bachelor’s nowadays. While I would state that that’s a good ‘insurance policy’ it may not be the most enjoyable and fruitful route for a young person who wants a challenging and rewarding career!

      Thanks so much for your thoughts!
      Doug

      PS: I LOVE Office Space!

    Great post doug.
    Being a “millennial” I def. agree with everything you have said here.

    Meet them where they are, and take a line of coke with that shotgun. You are going to need it.

    PC Load letter what the #$@# does that mean?
