Is it time to dust off that backpack?
I realize that for some of us, high school was a long time ago. I mean loooonggggg ago. But I for one still love learning. I love taking new courses and got quite excited when I signed up for my 3rd online course to learn how to teach online. Yep – I’m stepping back up to the front of the class!
But if I didn’t make education a priority, I wouldn’t be in a position to improve my business, my knowledge base and my ability to earn a better living. Who doesn’t want to do that?
Sometimes stuff gets in the way of learning. Could be family. Could be an asshat boss. Or it could be the one person we rely on to make sure we’re not only moving towards the glass ceiling but are ready to bust through it – ourselves. And that, my friend, is where you need to evaluate the priority you place on education as a means of getting ahead.
So put your big kids pants on. We’re going back to school!
