Handwork and fate

I have two widely prevailing and mutually contradictory views on hard work. One is that  however hard you work, you are only going to  get whatever is there in your fate. Other one is that ‘nothing is impossible’. First view is held by those who are either influenced by creationist ( God will do) or who have experienced failures in spite of hard work. Second view is held generally by those who have experienced success.

My views on hard work are somewhat statistical. To me fate is nothing but chance. While people say somebody is born in rich family by fate, I would say it is so by chance. Thus it would be more appropriate to say that hard work doesn’t guarantee success, but improves its chance.

Do you agree?

Thank you for visiting my web page! As you see on the top of this web page, my name is Tadesse Gedefa Mekonnen. I come to this world from poorer family. However, people in the region says my are middle class family. I think this is possible because comparison of income is contextual. My educational background is some what mixed. My educational background is some what mixed. I did two Masters degree: one in Public Health (MPH) and another in Social Psychology. My undergraduate degree was Sociology and Social Work. I also BSC in Medical Laboratory Technology from Gondar University. Further, I won NUFFIC scholarship for international course in Health development of the 2014/15. I had been working for Adama Science and Technology University from 2007 till 2014 as trainer, program coordinator and Chief senior expert in the areas of Sexual reproductive health (SRH) and right, HIV/AIDS, Gender, drug addition, peer education, mentor-ship and life skill. I also provide courses for undergraduate students such as Introduction to sociology, Research, Social Work and community development.

The most important thing in my life is moral values & respect for friends, womens, elders and for minority population. I believe in diversity and change. I love to discuses issues related to democracy, right and freedom of people to access health, education, justice and other social services. My future plan is to provide consultancy and mentorship in the areas of my expertise for low and middle income countries especially in Sub-Saharan Africa and Middle East.
