I just receive a brochure from the National University of Singapore inviting folks to enrol in their Master program. Of course, my first impression is, the course will be too tough for me to do part-time for two and a half years. Some of my friends and ex-colleagues I met at times did mention the advantages and goodness in advancing our studies and upgrading ourselves. Said ..let's do this la... take that exam la...and etc.
It's always good to pursue something that's beneficial to us but however, I felt that it should also come with passion too. Without interest and passion, whatever we set to work on will become a burden to us, instead of some journey to knowledge and wisdom. I used to be kinda ambitious, wanted to learn this and that but end up nowhere..LOL. Actually, what I am lacking is passion. I remember I was studying for an exam and finished the book half-way but I kinda procrastinate and after a while, stop there.
Of course, on the other hand, there are times that we sometimes 'force' to take up some courses and exams, like certification exams required by an organisation and etc. However, it's always good to instill passion into the project that we are committing ourselves onto and enjoy it. I'm sure regular bloggers here are passionate about blogging and end up learning lots of stuffs related to blogs, like self-hosting, earning wages from the blogs, attending events and so on.
I guess before we start on anything, let's make sure we have the interest and passion to keep it up! Have a good weekend!
