Education vs. Experience: What is the most effective learning?

Good morning colleagues—

Today I have some interesting information for us to think about. At one of my recent conferences, I met an interesting young man, Jared Kleinert, who is trying an interesting experiment. He is trying to see what is more important to one’s success: formal education or personal experience.

I share with you his blog below regarding his experiment.

I will also share with you part of my connection with Jared in an interesting article that was just posted on the Huffington Post.

The Huffington Post piece (or at least Part One of it) finally went up! Here it is!

I look forward to your thoughts and comments regarding the value of formal credential education vs. personal experiences.  What is the highest value for learning?
