    PRACTICAL RESULTS

    GREAT PIECE.

    But after speaking about potential, and giving a blessing for utilizing full potential, I humbly think we need to discuss action, goals and results.

    BOCHURIM!! Start having goals and get on with achieving them.

    Truthfully this post is at the wrong time of year, the end of the school year is not a time where most bochurim are sitting contemplating seriously about development and growth. I think maybe it would be a good idea to re-post this in two months.

    In any case, Chevreh, think about accomplishments..

    What's the point??

    There must be an underline reason for this op-ed which is not revealed in this article In my opinion, this “generalization” of “Bochrim” is wrong either way there are some who are great and some who are not so great. some that fits the negative description and some that fits the positive one and probably a vast majority that is somewhere in between my advice to the author is, if you have a problem with the behavior of an individual “Bochur” or a group of them you should address it with them and not publicly if you think that your… Read more »

    Really! after hundreds and hundreds of yeshiva bachurim gracing your shabbos table for the duration of some ten years, you now realize you’ve made a mistake in your perception?
    Please explain!

    Why you chose to criticize the timing of this article is beyond me. How do you know? What if this is a perfect time, because there is space to take it in after the school year! Maybe not! I like the rest of what you write, but the criticism leaves a funny taste. It feels like you just wanted to put some kind of oppositional stance for its own sake.

    On the contrary!!

    Number one is written in impeccable taste…

    just as a matter of עצה טובה קמ”ל is asking that it should be RE-posted …

    or did you not notice that?

    Are we living in an age where even if you CLEARLY write POSITIVE criticism it will be seen in a negative way???

    No, we’re not living in an age where ” even if you CLEARLY write POSITIVE criticism it will be seen in a negative way”. As I indicated, I LIKED what you wrote, except for the wording of that one part. To my writing sensibilities, to begin a comment with “truthfully this is the wrong”, and further it with “the end of the year is not a time” sounded like a pretty authoritative way to express that sentiment. Perhaps a more tactful choice of phrasing would have rendered a different quality. Just saying….

    Impeccable taste? I would not agree with that. I didn’t like his/her under current attitude. But regardless, I think the original article has a great message. And I think there is no “right” time for it. For some this may be the perfect time, and for others it may not! If #10 would have chosen wording such as…….”This is a great piece. Some might get a lot from it now that we are not in the midst of our business. Others might be more apt to appreciate in when we get back to business. Please consider reposting at the start… Read more »
