What Is Your Education Purpose?

Tough economies pose difficult career hurdles, but also opportunities. Even if you haven’t lost your job, you probably know someone who has. Any period of economic correction is the perfect time to question your educational goals.

A great post from Happy Halfway discusses the writer’s individual educational goals:

What are your educational goals?

    • Do you want to keep your skills up to date in your current job?
    • Do you want to vamp up your earning power?
    • Do you want to retrain for a completely new midlife career change?
    • Do you want to focus on your personal growth and development?
    • Do you want to learn something fun like scuba diving or photography?
    • Do you feel alive when faced with new challenges and just love learning new ideas and things?
    • Do you want to learn something that will get you one step closer to retirement such as managing investments and retirement accounts?
    • Do you want to be a role model for your children and teach them it’s never too late to get an education?
    • Do you just want to learn more about your favorite hobbies and subjects?Your education purpose will most likely change as you get older. When I first went to college my goal was to get a degree in order to get a good job that paid well.

Today my goal is to learn those things that I’m passionate about and that challenges me to be the best person I can be.
Once you know what your education purpose is, there are countless resources available to find the learning gateway to help you reach your needs.
