Career Decisions - We Don’t Need More Education

Career Decisions

We spend 11 years of our lives in school, learning various things, some of which we really don’t need. What is the relevance of, for example, geography to our lives, or the “all-time favorite,” Algebra?

If you have absolutely no intention to be a rocket scientist, or a doctor, or a professional of any sort, then what happens when you have the high school diploma in your hand? What is the value of that education if you don’t know what your career choices are?


In every class, there is a genius. Homework is always done, reading completed, class projects at the top of the pile. We can call him whatever name we want, but the reality is he seems to have a sense of direction and purpose. 

Speaking to them, we discover the intention to become a doctor or a lawyer – the career decisions seem to be so securely made, but for looking at ourselves, even contemplate more education is unthinkable!


Am I Defined By My Career Decisions?

Sadly, the answer to this question is yes. There are not all A-students or lawyers, doctors, or engineers. Does that mean that those who don’t are doomed? Why should it matter what career decisions we make?


It is not the career decision itself that defines an individual. It is what he thinks of it that counts. There are, for example, many people with high school diplomas who have stable jobs that allow them to pay the bills, and guess what, they are happy. 

For them, living life does not matter as much as working and making a living.


Is that you? Or are you going to be kicking yourself in ten years? Where will you be in ten years? Where do you want to be, and what will it take for you to get there? 

If you have a skill or talent, don’t you want to go to university or college to ripen that talent into something that can earn you money, maybe even in a big way? 

And you know what they say–if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. What education is necessary to reach this goal? It’s yours if you want it.

So, you’re surrounded by people who think that getting an education isn’t cool. Whenever you jump on the bandwagon, you must ask yourself what you really think. 

Is it possible to make it without an education? Often, when we are surrounded by people who don’t prioritize things like education or career choices, it is straightforward to fall into the same rut. Are you really that person?
