  1. Stop giving excuses you can learn it on you won. Except of course you want to learn something like medicine or law, then you need to go to school for that one. I always advice people to learn from someone when they can, but the truth is that most professionals don’t have the time to teach you and even if they did, you will cover more attempting to learn on your own.
  2. You can get a technical Job if you learn the skill and these days technical skills like programming and design are very lucrative. They mostly require thinking. This is also why they are few people or few good people in the field. Most people find thinking hard.
  3. You target when in school is not to learn, but to learn how to learn, the world changes fast anyways. You must learn to unlearn, learn and relearn fast in order to get what you need and desire.
  4. Your limit is dependent on how much useful thing you can learn. I have learn that companies just want solutions to their problems. The more problems you can solve, the more valuable you become. This is not a matter of CS Certificate.
  5. The culture of learning makes you smart and able to thrive in any field. Despite spending more than three-quarter of my time in school learning computer skills, I was still graduated as one of the best in my Estate Management Course. I simply applied my learning habits on CS to Estate Management and it worked. I failed one course, but destroyed it the next semester (took me 2 nights without sleep but I conquered).
  6. The learning culture is also a problem solving game. You learn so you can solve your immediate problems. The more you learn and apply the more you get better at solving problems and your creativity is boosted.
