More than a dozen companies, including Google, Apple and IBM, are no longer requiring applicants to have college degrees, CNBC reports.

Why it matters: Many jobs have historically required employees to hold college degrees even if they are not relevant or needed. This is connected to an effort to improve diversity and make it easier for those that attend coding boot camps or pursue other non-traditional college paths to be hired.

🔭 It pays to look at opportunity with a telescope. It’s real, but it’s distant. The telescope brings it into focus and helps you find your way there. Telescopes are easy to find if you look for them.

🔬 And it often pays to look at trouble with a microscope. Not to get intimidated by the amorphous blob that could snuff out your dreams, but instead to look at the tiny component parts, learning how it is constructed and taking away its power. Once you realize how it’s built, you can deal with it.

Your emergency is not a license to steal my attention.

Your insecurity is not a permit to hustle me or my friends.

It's time to get off the social media merry go round that goes faster and faster but never gets anywhere.

Time to stop hustling and interrupting.

Time to stop spamming and pretending you're welcome.

Time to stop making average stuff for average people while hoping you can charge more than a commodity price.

Time to stop begging people to become your clients.

And time to stop feeling bad about charging for your work.

Time to stop looking for short cuts and time to start insisting on a long viable path instead.
