I think you have a really good point. What you have to say is really intellectually stimulating. I think your angle on this topic is appropriate. And you did a good job of conveying your point. I mostly agree with you.

B) i completely agree with you on that. I think that as long as some one invests time into what they do and truly put all their efforts into mastering that craft they are professionals. after all there isn't a numeric or even theoretic way of measuring some ones professionalism; the amount of experience vs the knowledge one has on an art or a type of subject make that person a professional. If i were to put it in terms that would be easier to understand id say; think about any artist that has hit a popular amount of success, before that was the case most of them were considered debutantes and unprofessional, perhaps even an aspiring portage. Unfortunately people today want to see hard evidence to identify your professionalism and one version of that hard evidence would be your success rate and your credentials.


Definitely keep in mind that even professionals have things to learn, the world keeps changing and as this happens, new ways of doing things come about, so remember that this world will keep on teaching even the professionals how to do their jobs even better and more efficiently. The true title of a professional lys in the need and want to learn more and hone ones skills for as long as possible. It is the undying love and motivation that makes one able to become a professional at what it is that they do.

To be a professional anything requires you that you be paid for what you do. However, I would argue that professional development can incorporate any number of endeavors. For instance, being a part of any sports team helps you learn to be a team player, which is a fundamental skill in almost any profession. In order to be a skilled artist, one must put in a lot of practice and exercise patience; as well as harness creativity - more valuable traits to be used in any profession.

it's important that a true pro be well rounded and have a good attitude, and the best way to achieve that is by learning life lessons and social skills, because those are also important tools of the trade.
