It’s easy to assume that learning ends when you’re finished with school. No more homework, no more tests. Just because it’s been a few years since you’ve set foot in a classroom, doesn’t mean you should or can stop learning. Like it or not, we must remain open to learning all the time in order to keep up with everything that’s happening around us. It’s essential for staying up to date in an ever-changing world.
Most people never give learning much thought. They pick up bits and pieces in an unstructured way, learning just enough to get through the job at hand. Some people just shrug and declares it too difficult for them.
A lot of people hardly ever pick up a book again, even for pleasure. Research shows that most successful people read every day. It can be online, on a handheld device or with an actual book.
“Life is about learning; when you stop learning, you die.” – Tom Clancy
