SHOULD YOU GO TO UNIVERSITY? -
As a believer in lifelong education, I firstly want to state that continuously learning and developing is NEVER a bad thing. You are the greatest investment that you’ll ever make.
There are some careers that higher education is non-negotiable. These could include becoming a doctor, dentist, accountant, clinician etc. In these instances, it is completely imperative.
Problems arise when a University education is chosen out of a lack of clarity - “I don’t know what to do” or if it’s based upon pleasing someone else like parents or teachers.
University is often pushed by parents and teachers because during the baby boomer era, that level of qualification was the gold standard. However, in today’s day and age a university degree is more saturated than its ever been. A lot of times, it just tends to teach the masses how to be more like the masses.
In this age of information overwhelm and unbelievable scale, there’s never been a greater opportunity for someone to achieve financial freedom. Don’t allow your life to be dictated by someone else’s vision for it. -
My advice: Go to University if you need to go, or go if you have the money to pay for a 3 year holiday. 🤟
