You Must Be a Lifelong Learner
Published on: 09.08.2019
Knowledge and new skills change you and the best way to keep such change constant is through lifelong learning.
Lifelong learners are motivated to do it due to various reasons. First, most people associate learning with formal education.
Education a fundamental right, yet millions of children and adolescents don’t have access to education. At the same time, millions of adults, most of them women, are illiterate. Inaccessibility to the right of education impairs those people from improving their living conditions. But it doesn’t mean that they can’t learn new skills. These people can get access to education, vocational or formal in a period of life other than school age.
Second, one can never say: Now I know enough!
Don’t get this comfortable. Change is a constant and you need to evolve too to keep pace with new technologies, phenomena, and mindsets.
Third, learning doesn’t always happen within a school or classroom. Every opportunity that provides people with new skills is a learning environment. From a craftsman workshop to online training, learning opportunities come in many informal ways.
