Something weird is happening with me.
For years I hated studying. It took me multiple attempts to find a degree at university that would keep my attention. I tried environmental management type courses, internet related courses before ending up with a degree in Criminology.
Now, I’m itching to study again. To do formal education once more.
Because that’s what’s always caused me issues. Having to follow the recommended core competency subjects which were never as interesting as the electives. Needing to learn particular subjects not because I wanted to, but because I had to.
But I’m indecisive.
I could get a Masters in Criminology and the Justice System. Build upon my degree some more. I really love the sounds of some of the subjects I’d get to do by doing my Masters. Plus, it can be a nice little brag that I have one.
Yet, it would be doing it for the sake of doing it. Not because it would be overly useful to me now days.
So, then I think maybe I should do another degree… something that could be worthwhile for me while running my own business. Upskill myself with a business degree or a marketing degree or something. Then I read their subjects and I cringe, because I would seriously be unhappy having to do their core subjects for another 3 or 4 years.
But I think I have finally worked out a solution that will benefit me as well as benefit my business. Allow me to upskill myself as well as pick limited ‘boring’ subjects and be able to pick more ‘fun’ subjects. Let me focus on the areas of my business I love and ensure that I am on top of those areas. As well as looking at subjects to introduce me to new skills, and some ones just for the hell of it.
I’ve been making a list. A list of short courses online. And I am loving the variety of them.
I could do a subject on fashion or on make up to better understand several of my clients, or on health related topics to help with another. I could do a subject in web design and follow that up with a subject on photography, cause why not?
So now… now my indecision is what to begin with!?
Have you ever felt that kind of feeling where something you used to hate is now actually interesting you?
