Online Education: Balancing School With Other Life Responsibilities
3 pages in length. Everything takes priority at one time or another; the most important thing to remember is that only one thing can take priority at a time. Balance is the key to successfully juggling an online education with work and/or family demands, however, balance requires sacrifice and compromise whereby something at sometime is going to have to be delegated a secondary preference. The greatest conflict people find when they attempt an online degree is the perceived notion of "your time is your own" from employers, friends and family alike. While the fundamental attraction of online education is the ability to achieve this goal at home, that is the only difference between it and a brick-and-mortar schedule. That online learning removes the logistic component does not mean it lacks structure of time and commitment, a realization that spawns frustration when trying to balance with work and/or family demands.
