When do you give up on your goals?
When do you accept defeat in the face of something beyond your immediate capabilities?
Specifically, I’m in the process of switching my major from something very abstract and forgiving (Business Administration) to something more concrete and technical (Biological Sciences). I enjoy biology very much, but will have to truck through Calc 3 in order to reach my (admittedly lofty) graduate school goals.
Any self-proclaimed “bad at math” flutherites here that have achieved a higher knowledge of biochemistry or physics? Tell me your story.
Lastly, what difficult choices and trade-offs have you made in the pursuit of your careers/degrees?
