To Succeed Or Not To Succeed, That Is The Question

678 words - 3 pages

In a daily routine, one completes regular tasks daily, that sooner or later become more of a habit than anything else. Ages from Kindergarten to college level education write and construct stories about daily routines. Some say that routines can be defined as small steps to prepare you for your day. Deeper thinkers, or philosophers, would relate another word to this very same definition. This acclaimed word is “success.” Looking into Robert Collier’s quote that, “success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out,” there is much evidence in the texts, Career’s in Robotics: A Case Study, and Team Builds ‘Sociable’ Robot, by Elizabeth Thompson, that the quote should be refuted because slow pace to success wasn’t the route that was taken, the routine was changed dramatically, yet success was achieved, and one wrong move can completely devastate any form of success.

Secondly, two men were on a course to success on their own circumstances, yet they met at crossroads and ended up pursuing the same career, as shown in Career’s in Robotics: A Case Study. In the text, it says that, “I (Matt) was a classic underachiever in high school...I got into college by the skin of my teeth. Once I got into college, though, I realized I wanted to focus on my interests (Page 743).” On the other hand, his partner, Gil, had quite the opposite education plan. “Gil, on the other hand, was a good student in high school, but didn’t start out in robotics... (Page 743).” Both of these people could have found success themselves, especially Gil, yet they molded their own path to another form of success.
Lastly, one wrong calculation on either job related to robotics could result in a severe setback, and maybe even destroying all work previously done. For example, if Kismet the Robot were not to continue to be maintenanced and worked on, he would be but a memory of scientific genius. Also, if Kismet were to become corrupt, the whole operation ceases to a halt. “The algorithms that are crucial to this will allow the robot to learn by trial and error. When it first attempts a task, it won't be very good. The robot will remember its mistakes, however, and make incremental improvements as it goes along.” What if it was not to remember? Improvements could not be made, and therefore the self-proclaimed “success” wouldn’t be attained.
Education is an important source of many of the world’s inventions. While some say that success is attained by ‘taking it day by day,’ it is the incorrect way to observe. Viral videos show that success can come from nothing, and a name is immediately built for them. Obviously, looking into Robert Collier’s quote that, “success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out,” there is much evidence in the texts, Career’s in Robotics: A Case Study, and Team Builds ‘Sociable’ Robot, by Elizabeth Thompson, that the quote should be refuted because slow pace to success wasn’t the route that was taken, the routine was changed dramatically, yet success was achieved, and one wrong move can completely devastate any form of success.
