Myself, I am pretty much uneducated, well, in the traditional sense that is, having opted out of schooling at the age of 16. But I travelled extensively, worked many jobs, and learned numerous skills in a varied career. Not the easiest of routes I’ll admit, and certainly not the most financially rewarding, but for me, the ‘University of Life’ felt right.
Some I know have never left education, having continued through school, college/university, post-grad studies and built a career in academia.
Others have completed basic undergrad studies and gone on to build careers in areas utterly contrary to their educational credentials.
What route do you think holds the key to a balance of success and happiness?
