Don’t get me wrong here. An education is an extremely valuable tool which can help empower millions of people across the world. It can make you more successful than you could ever imagine and teach you to view the world through a technicolor lens, however, there are some skills which are as valuable, if not more, than an education. These skills need to be learned with an open mind, and will eventually become skills if you prioritize them as an attitude, belief and way of life. They can’t be tested in exams, nor turned on and off depending on what the situation demands. And they definitely can not be learned in a classroom. Eventually, an education can not simply be limited to a degree, but can be defined by how you choose to view the world and what you can learn from it.
