Choose a Career

"Be Prepared" for what is going to happen to you in the future. If you are in a situation where you are earning money as a boy, what are you going to do when you finish that job ? You ought to be learning some proper trade, and save your pay in the meantime, to keep you going till you get employment in your future trade.

And try to learn something of a second trade, in case the first one fails you at any time, as so very often happens.

An employer told me once that he never engaged a lad who had yellow finger-tips (from smoking), or who carried his mouth open (boys who breathe through the mouth have a stupid look). Any man is sure of employment who has money in the bank, keeps away from drink, and is cheery.

Lots of wasters or weaklings have gone out into the world and many of them have failed to make good, but I have never come across a failure among young fellows who have gone out with a real desire to work and with the ability to stick to their job, to act straight, and to keep sober.


Lord Baden-Powell of Gilwell (Chief Scout, London, UK)
