What is the point of your education?

Beyond the better life it can afford you

It’s helpful to consider the footprint our lives are leaving behind.

The main trouble with selfish ambitions is that they are small.

And wasteful.

We settle for comfort when we could have gone for agency;

The capacity to carve out a corner of the world

Small enough for us to influence and

Big enough to matter.

So as you consider your next qualification,

It might help to ask – what is this for, really?
