The intent is not to persuade or dissuade, rather to help ensure you’ve thought about the process (aka your time), your goals and the associated benefits.
Why am I getting it?
Am I choosing or is it being forced?
Is what I’m doing really learning? or just memorization?
Is it about curiosity and passion or just accreditation?
Will it help me, my organization, my peers, in the long run?
Could I be using my time more effectively? If so, doing what?
Does it make me more valuable?
Will it open more doors?
Does it translate well into career advancement?
Do I know others who have seen more success because of it?
Does it make me a differentiator when evaluated against my peers for a promotion or during an interview?
What is my end goal with another certification?
