“Commit yourself to lifelong learning. The most valuable asset you’ll ever have is your mind and what you put in it.”Brian Tracey
Does education end once you have received your degree? How about once you’ve landed the perfect job? Would you buy a new car and ignore its routine maintenance, of course not; then why ignore your mind. Knowledge is to your brain like oil is to your car, without it you can’t go the distance.
Lifelong learning by definition is the lifelong, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. As such, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship and personal development, but also competitiveness and employability. It is an investment in yourself that has unlimited growth potential. With an ROI (return on investment) such as that you can’t afford not to take advantage of it.
Learn a new hobby, get certified in your field, attend conferences, take a course at a university, and last but not least exhaust every training opportunity your company has to offer. Make a commitment to yourself and continue lifelong learning for both your professional and personal growth. Adults who continue to learn are better equipped for career advancement because they stay current with an ever changing environment.
Expanding your skillset and knowledge base can reshape your current role and lead to career growth.
Greatness is not inherited, it starts within. Inspire to be your best and continue to cultivate and enhance your mind!
