...I want you to be a serious person, to be needed by someone other than yourself and your parents.
О.P. Paton
... I know that gives the greatest joy. This is the ability to set yourself a small but independent goal and persistently seek to achieve it. Knowing what you want to achieve in life is a great happiness. My choice was made firmly: I will build bridges.

  • Love of independence
  • Pride incompatible with precaution before superiors. That's why I was always ashamed to ask for myself.
  • Poorly developed sociability, as a result of which I was little in the company and had a small circle of acquaintances.
  • Highly developed practicality. In any work, I am always primarily interested in its purpose and practical purpose.
  • Success in work.
  • Demanding of subordinates and yourself too.
  • Persistence in carrying out the planned (outlined, defined) goal.
