November 2012: Motivation

Why am I embarking on this five or six year journey that is going to cost me more than I can afford?

A doctorate is a long-time goal that I am leaving pretty late in the career run. It’s now or never.

I love to study and a doctorate is the highest level of study I can do.

A doctorate to a life-long learner is like Everest to a mountaineer. You climb it because it is there.
