Learning should never stop after school & University.
The Universe is so vast that there’s countless to learn about – I am not pertaining to physics alone. Learning never ends. We read, we learn. We listen to other people, we learn. We have experiences, we learn. The more we read, observe, and listen, the broader our eyes and minds will open.In reality people tend to forget, or not apply, what they learned from school when facing life beyond the bell, which validates Albert Einstein’s keen observation:
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”
No matter the amount of books we read, seminars we attend, all of these will just become fond memories if not put into practice in real life. Here’s the good news, the best of your learning’s will ALWAYS come from your mistakes in application and NOT only your wins. Know this and adjust your mindset to view failure as your teacher.
Learning is a choice. One can’t learn if the will is not there. Your progress in life and so your business can be accurately measured to the amount of learning you consistently apply everyday. To quote Dr. Seuss:
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
It’s true that there is no shortcut to sustainable success. The journey will be a lot easier when we are equipped with adequate knowledge and skills acquired by learning and remaining open to learning every day.
So be ready for your journey. Read, listen, and get your hands dirty.
