Willing to "serve time" for long term rewards.Potter reports that his friends in university were totally oriented to doing things they didn't like for long term rewards.
While in college, I saw my classmates putting a lot of work into participating in student organizations, voluntary research activities, workshops and conferences, mainly because “it looks good on a resume”.
Potter himself admits that:
in the early stages of their career, people have to make sacrifices and investments so they can move forward.
However he believes that passion should not be totally surbordinated to the goal of building a name-dropping resume that shows that you've been hanging the proper places.
Is this guy too old to be a real Gen Y? What about his friends?
