Before I decided to further my education a few years back, there was a time where I felt lost in what I wanted to do. I think many people feel this when they are deciding what to study. It can be quite over whelming to think about all the money and dedication that will go into this journey. For me personally, there was not easy or instant answer. It is important to follow these steps if you are considering pursuing a degree in the near future.
Do you know what you are truly passionate about?
Take the time to figure out what makes you happy. What is it that keeps your attention and that you could see yourself doing daily? This can be more than one thing of course. So, try and think of a career path that fits you specifically.
Are you ready to dedicate the time?
Getting in the pattern of doing class work and attending is a total change. Think of it as a lifestyle and ask yourself are you ready for that. I think this helps with being successful in the process of staying on task and not giving up.
Lastly, as important as it is to take the time to understand the direction you want to take. Don’t let fear or being undecided hold you back too long. You can always make some degree planning adjustments along the way. It is completely normal to switch it up if necessary.
