Never Stop Learning
No matter what knowledge I already have I have always believed that life provides the opportunity to never stop learning. Even taking a refresher course on topics you are already familiar with can provide additional information, as tips or tools may have changed over time, or simply having a different presenter can provide a different perspective you may not have thought of.
While we often look at our physical health and commit to working out every day, our mental strength and growth is an important part of our overall development over time. Like many, we may fall into our daily routines and not push ourselves beyond what we know, happy and content with our snippets of knowledge, or simply too busy to focus the much-needed attention on ourselves.
In this day and age, learning something new is easy. With the plethora of online resources, you can expand your knowledge on just about any topic. Developing soft or hard skills on topics that are of personal interest or that can further your career all provide value. Whether the direction of learning is towards art, music, math, science, or a wide range of technologies, whatever you choose to learn, it is abundantly clear that simply opening your mind to the experience can provide the greatest reward.
Beyond just believing it, I am committed to spending time every single day increasing my knowledge or developing a new skill, and in this industry that is a good thing.
“There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
