Well, hard to know one’s own mind with clarity, but for me I THINK it’s 2 factors.

  1. I just love to learn. Always have.
  2. I grew up pretty poor and started working very young. I never, ever feel secure in my position. I'm fully aware that at any moment hardship can return, so I’m constantly trying to stay ahead of the curve and to have options ready for when the time comes. So, I figure if I just keep adding skills, keep learning, keep earning credentials, then I am somewhat buttressed against coming challenges. I just always feel every day like I need to prove myself over again and to advance my position…out of pure survival.
