Welcome to ‘The Question’.
That’s Stephen’s from ‘The State of the nation UK’ new project after the end of the ‘5 on the fifth’. Stephen poses a question to all bloggers each month.
The first one for January ‘12 is:
What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?
There are a lot of things that went through my mind when I read this question and thought of answering it. There are a lot of things I wish I could do better. There are things that I wish would have gone differently. But what would I attempt and not fail at? Because some of the answers I know will be followed up with: "well, just go to it!"
I read this question and project yesterday... I know I'm a day late (and a dollar short, as my dad would say). But I finally thought of something I would do... and why I just don't go do it now.
My answer: I would go back to school and get a degree.
Probably in the medical field. Then I wouldn't be limited in options of employment.
So... why not do it now?
It has been 30 years since I was last in study mode and I don't have the financial means. But... if I knew I couldn't fail I wouldn't worry about stuff like that.
This was a very interesting question. I look forward to next month's question.
