I have been working on my dissertation for the past two years. I thought I would be done by now. When I am writing, I am amazed at how many times I have to go back to the beginning to align my work. It will be totally worth it in the end because I will have my doctoral degree. It won’t matter to most people outside of myself, but it will matter to me.
The challenge of completing something so intensive is so satisfying. It is something I do for myself that allows me to help others. I used to get asked why I pursue my education. I love to learn! Simple as that. I have more choices in life because of learning.
I recommend lifelong learning. It keeps the mind sharp and comes in handy when you least expect it. Even learning something crafty. Really anything you choose to learn can be satisfying. It doesn’t need to be intense or even formal learning. Pick something you want to know better or new. Then do it!
