That is a possibility. My wife is from Ethiopia, still has family there. It is very much a country in need itself. If I did service abroad, chances are high the whole family would go. My wifes skill set is much more useful than mine for that matter.
Very good ideas.
Part of this is the desire to seek higher education. I’m blessed in the fact that my wife is a doctor, and once here residency is complete, I will be free to follow my own path. But as of now my experience in life comprises of two things really, 10 years in the infantry and pulling cable. With some general IT skills thrown in.
So I am really looking to develop skills in something I am interesteted in. I know getting into resivoir engineering is very useful in a third world perspective especially. But it doesnt interest me so to speak.
Maybe I am looking to deep into things. Going for the grail so to speak “A job I actually love that is beneficial to others in a life changing way”. It really is a tall order.
Again, my aptitude is with computers it seems. I’ve been a hobbyist for years. I just never have buckled down and focused on a direction or use for that aptitude.
i’m so confused…lol[quote=“WarrenHill, post:3, topic:8176”]
I know back in 2006 @jonobacon saw a need for better multi track music editing software. The result was Jokosher. Jono did not have the necessary programming skills at the time but was able to build a community (sorry Jono for stealing your word) which did have the necessary skills to build it.
This is very cool…and a great point.
