When your teachers made you work in groups to complete a project, it wasn’t so that you could get to know other students. It was so you could figure out a way to work with future co-workers who never do what they are supposed to do in the time needed.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
