I read the book "For one more day" by Mitch Albom. And I found the followingsentence is very interesting:Going back to something is harder than you think.
Charley wanted to quit college to play basevall and he told his mother that "I can always go back to school". And that's how his mother replied.
People will make decisions easily,and will think it will be easy to fix it if they find it's a mistake. Butit is not indeed easy.
This is from all the 40 years wisdom from the mom. And sometimes, we feellike we can learn something from the elnders, mentors, or the books.
I told my daughter the similar storyyesterday because my graduate advisorsaid the same thing to me.
In 1995, I passed my comprehensive examand would get my Ph.D in statistics if I could finish the dissertation.But I decided to be a computer engineerfor a few years and told my old professorthat I would come back within 5 yearsto fiish my degree. Though very sadand disappointed about y leaving,he told me that once you leave school,you will not come back.
And it was so true.
