Once A Drop Out, Always...Wait Not This Time (I Hope)

February 6, 2008 6:25pm CST
I am at a point in my medical transcription program where I don't have the drive to continue. This is really frustrating to me because I've been trying to complete my college education for soooo long. First it was computer science, but that was right after high school and I wasn't really focused on school...then it was accounting, and that was part-time in night school while working a full-time job and that was taking forever so I lost interest really quick...now it's medical transcription. I'm half way there. I want a diploma, I'm tired of not graduating the first time haunting me. How on earth do you people in the work force keep up the motivation to keep on going until you graduate? I would really appreciate any tips.

I think most of the motivation has to come from having a passion for what you are going to school for. Is this something your going to enjoy once you do graduate? Sounds like you have had a few choices but is it what your heart wants? Then you know sometimes we just have to have discipline and force past the stagnant period. But with out passion all we are doing is killing time.

I really don't know if this is what my heart wants. But now that you've put the thought in my head, I'm really going to have to give that a lot of thought. Thanks for the post.
