It is an absolute waste of a great mind to not attempt a higher education… but… we must also keep in mind that a higher education is not limited or confined to a classroom, or always led by an instructor. You must venture off into books, be curious, research, converse with elders, be inquisitive and mentally reach for the skies.
“The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained in sudden flight but, they while their companions slept, they were toiling upwards in the night.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Good Poems for Hard Times
That poem has to do with education, as much as it has to do with achieving goals – which is by continuous momentum. So come on and let’s do it – challenge yourself.
