Ever since we were little there has been a high emphasis placed on gaining a rewarding education. Years were spent in classrooms hunched over tiny desks solving math problems or learning new vocabulary words. How much of that have you retained over the years? Is your previous educational background going to be as pertinent as you thought for your future aspirations? The answer is most likely no. Information that was learned in the early years of life is most often forgotten completely by the time we venture out into the real world.
As we grow, our education molds to support our interests and needs. Sometimes, however, additional education is only obtained in order to increase our pay. In today’s economic state, sometimes our interests take a back seat to a more lucrative career. Wouldn’t it be convenient to be able to learn something economically relevant, that you will be able to use for the rest of your life?
