I was taught on the job by various grizzled old men with leathery Boston Red Sox and Sport in Boston shirt , scarred hands and scruffy beards, a couple of them were barely literate. But what they taught me was only 30% knowledge, what they really taught me was a mindset, attitude! They made me a problem solver, a person who takes on the challenge when others give up. I might get it done slower than someone who has that bit of ‘specific’ knowledge but you can throw anything in my path, and I’ll figure it out and get it done.

Yea sure nobody taught you how to work on those forklift trucks. You were born with that knowledge. I think you being a little harsh on the Boston Red Sox and Sport in Boston shirt ones. You talking like you knew everything at that age. What I do agree with is that a lot has to do with their mindset and attitude. That can improve with most of them not all. But also the attitude and mindset can be taught. You say you have it. Well project it on the newbies and teach them. There are a lot of rough diamonds. Knowledge is base of everything. Simple.
I made it clear I was taught these attitudes!! I also said it was 30% knowledge, and I do try to teach these young lads the right way when I can get my hands on them, think you took what I wrote really the wrong way. My point was what you can achieve with the Boston Red Sox and Sport in Boston shirt set of life skills rather then pure knowledge. I genuinely don’t blame these young lads for the way they are, the mentors/companies that trained them failed them miserably
