Investment in Higher Education for Better Future?

Face it. Nothing in this world is certain except taxes and death. No single rule of thumb is applicable for everyone. Yet, I believe there will be a suitable and unique rule of thumb that is only applicable to each individual. So, invest or not your limited resources to pursue higher education is extremely dependent on your 'uniqueness'.

I believe all people are suitable to learn and harvest knowledge and wisdom from formal education.
Some of them prefer to learn through practising or experiencing. Some of them prefer to learn through self-learning. Some of them prefer to learn through interaction with others. So, which one is the best. Well, I think the most important concern is to identify which method helps you to learn more. If you find one, please don't be hesitated to stick with that method through out your life.

I do see many people have a big dream or desire to further formal education. Well, this phenomenal is expected due to the widespread information from our mainstream channel. Nonetheless, I always believe each individual is unique. That is to say, each of us should follow what is the most suitable method for us to learn and grow.

Nonetheless, it is always a good idea to starting our learning journey from mainstream method. This is because mainstream practice is generally or partially suitable to most people. Again, at the end of the day, the ultimate goal of our learning journey is to discover most suitable learning method individually.

Don't be a shame to be unique. And don't be stubborn to apply general practice. Each individual is unique. Invest or not a master degree or PhD is dependent on your uniqueness. Find your uniqueness now!

Hi Kirk Meyer,

Thanks for offering alternative perspective. It is a good idea to apply Kirl's practice.

Having a tuition reimbursement plan that offered by a company implies that the tuition (that we are going to take) is promising to improve our ability in our workplace; thus the competitiveness of the company.
