It’s the dull stretch of hours — the slow drag of seconds and their missed opportunities. You’re creeping once again through traffic. The road is flooded with drivers: all furiously squawking on their phones, lamenting the need to travel. You refrain from doing the same, knowing that you would never be able to stop if you ever truly began. The complaints would be too many.
The commute between a campus and your home is long — with a distance only lengthened when you must first leave from the office. Time is wasted on the road, and you devote more minutes to your car than you do to your cubicle (or even your living room).
This is the aftermath of seeking an education while having also to work. It’s also, however, a worry that can be rectified.
Online learning allows you to gain control over your commute: shortening it dramatically as the need for a campus disappears. Through virtual classes you can earn an education that’s free of travel. No miles are needed to gain assignments; instead only a computer is required. All lesson plans and research materials can be accessed remotely, and this ensures that you can dedicate yourself to studying rather than driving.
Balancing the demands of your family and your career is difficult. Trying to maintain educational obligations as well, however, is almost impossible. The ability to lose the long commutes will offer relief each day; and this will allow your personal and corporate lives to greatly improve.
Remote locations offer easy advantages — and the less time you must spend in traffic is simply the best of these.
