The case for lifelong learning.
People often ask me why i keep studying and when i will be “done”.
To me, this type of question seems odd, because i am committed to lifelong learning.
I am of the opinion that going through life without learning something all the time would be a life wasted. I think this goes back to the early explorers. Discovering new things, whether it be a new continent or simply a piece of knowledge really excites a certain type of people.
I am by no means comparing myself to these great explorers, but i understand what drove these legendary people to do the things they did, whether it be Columbus or more recently modern day astronauts.
My studies, whether they be in the field of networking or more personal related, will continue until the day i leave this crazy world.
There so much information and knowledge thats readily available in our day and age, that i would find it hard to simply ignore it and just lean back and say: “thats it, im done!”.
As I write this post, its about 6am in the morning. Part of my morning ritual is getting to the office early and spending some time studying before i start work. It helps me get into the mental rythm.
So I have a job for your! Tonight, instead of spending an hour or more watching TV, try and pick a book on a topic thats of interest to you, and read for a bit. You’ll be amazed at how it makes you feel. Afterwards you will have picked up a bit of knowledge you didnt have before! – Its THAT easy!
Thanks for taking the time to read this post!
