Removing doubts by enjoying benefits
The past month of exposure to the world of economics have been mind altering. My information processing and building skills have increased immensely, and not just in the area of economics, but all areas of systematic thinking.
Understanding the motivations of businesses and governments reduce the complexities of absorbing the daily flow of worldly changes. Economic patterns and theories makes comprehending society easier. They're tools for filtering out noise and focussing on the signal.
Concerns on whether these tools will be directly applicable to the job of my dreams shouldn't be allowed to hog brain cycles. They're easing life in a commercial world, revealing connections previously hidden, and jump-starting great thinking.
That's plenty of justification for pushing further.
