RADIO PROGRAM No. 35 - Getting By versus Learning to Give
HOST: The doorknob on the new house that pulls off in your hand. The office worker who's the last one to show up and the first to leave. These are familiar situations. But have you ever asked yourself what they represent? Too often they result from a mental attitude on the part of the workman concerned, a mental attitude of being satisfied just to get by—just do the minimum.
Studies show that this attitude plays a big part in the lives of many people. An article in the New York Times by Andrew Hacker reports that many young people drop out of high school before graduating or give up any thought of college because (and I'm quoting) "they have grown up in families where the necessary stress is on 'getting by' rather than on 'getting ahead.' "
People wonder how to prevent this lack of progress. How can we gain the desire, the incentive, to develop our talents and opportunities?
