Why do we have to study?


So, recently, I went to chat with some students in high school and someone asked a valid question, is it worth it to study?

Yes, a degree or diploma takes time and money. And there is this buzz, that we no longer need a piece of cert to get jobs. While that might be happening in some companies in the US, in many countries, especially in Malaysia, a degree is still important.

Of course, whether you are on Deans list or not will determine whether you will be a super worker, but studying helps us in a few ways:

  1. How to work with others
  2. How to present professionally
  3. How to absorb information
  4. How to process information
  5. Building a solid foundation

So yea, I think studying is worth it, for sure. The journey is more important than the destination.
