"I was so shocked by this conversation that I ran to my parents and exclaimed: 'I'm sorry I've been so negligent with my studies.
Please give me one more chance to prove that I'm a good student.' And from that day onward, I applied myself to the study of Torah with tremendous vigor and dedication. But think of what would have happened at the end of my life when I'd get up to the Heavenly Court and they'd ask me: 'Naftali, show us what you've done with your life.' And I'd proudly show them my beautiful shoes: the fine workmanship, the quality leather and the exquisite design.

My grandfather made a lot of money and left me a good chunk of it. The Netziv, Rabbi Naftali Tzvi Yehuda Berlin, lived in Lithuania a few hundred years ago.
I'm a pretty talented guy, but I enjoy mountain biking and hanging out with my friends. He was the most famous rabbi of his generation, and it's said that in the 40 years he headed the yeshiva in the town of Voluzhin, some 10,000 students studied there.
My parents are hassling me to "go to college and do something with your life." But I'm not sure what's the problem with my current lifestyle. The Netziv wrote commentaries on all parts of the Torah, and once when he'd published a particularly difficult work, called "Ha Emek Shayla," he called together his friends for a special celebration, where he told them the following story: "When I was a child, I never paid attention in school. Then one day when I was 11 years old, I came home from school and heard my parents talking.
My father was explaining how he'd spoken to my teacher and together they'd concluded that I'd never amount to anything in terms of scholarship.
So, my father explained, he was arranging to enroll me as an apprentice shoemaker as soon as I became Bar Mitzvah.
