We all live in the moment while anticipating what our fate has to offer! But, where are we going with this, and how are we going to foretell the future? When all’s said and done, our future resides in limbo! To prophesize what’s coming, it’s indispensable to suzerain history.

But isn’t history just memorizing boring ancient relics of the past? Indeed, there’s more to it than just dates and times.

Albert Einstein once quoted “Never memorize what you can look up in a book.” Which by today’s standard implies nothing’s worth memorizing because everything is just one Google search away!

But that’s not what Mr. Einstein meant. What he wanted to say was, “you must abstain yourself from memorizing gratuitous amounts of details; in lieu, you should analyze the bigger picture and get a better hold on how things relate.”

When push comes to shove, if you frantically memorize stuff, eventually it’s going to be of no use, you won’t relate to anything, you’ll start forgetting stuff and time wasted! So, now that you know you should quit memorizing, here are a few reasons why you should study history!

Why you should study history?

(1). Dates?

What makes you think those who study historians are nerds? Most of us associate history with musing on dates, events, battles, locations, and empires, but that’s not it. The how & why questions are the crux of the history subject. These are legitimate doubts, which is why historians are good at analyzing situations. Analyzing history will enhance your knowledge of how things unfolded the way they are.

At the very least, it’s free practical knowledge.

(2). It’s more voguish than you think!

In general, history ranks among the top choices among students aspiring to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree. That’s it? Of course not! History is also a popular elective among engineering graduates and students with other specializations. A survey unfolded that most students like to dabble in a bit of history as part of their curriculum. As a conservative estimate, it is fascinating.

(3). Jobs!

If you are a government job aspirant, you can’t get away without studying history. Though it may seem strange, it helps even if you are wishful for top roles in the private sector. History in your resume can be your stroke of luck as it can get the conversation going and boost your chances of getting hired.

(4). Be a better person!

History is a subject full of stories and chronicles! Some will set you on fire with enthusiasm, and some grief-stricken. Analyzing those stories can lead you to vital life lessons, which are invaluable!
