You Must Be a Lifelong Learner

Entrepreneurship Campus

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.
You don’t need a university degree in economics to become an entrepreneur. Find out what is a sustainable entrepreneur and what you need to become one by taking our online training courses.

Before investing in a better world you need to invest in yourself. Prioritize learning.

  1. I am a true believer that learning stops only when our breathe stops forever.

    I know several women who were the victims of discrimination and hence could not be educated academically, but this developed them beautifully in other sectors like artistic talents.

    It has been well said that the one who says she/he knows all is actually a fool.

  2. As striving change makers; we need to develop a passion for learning. If we do, we will never cease to grow. An investment in knowledge pays the best interest and we are able to change the community around us as well. Thank you for sharing this and the sustainability training are my best.

  3. Thats so true : ” Before investing in a better world you need to invest in yourself. Prioritize learning. ”

    Invest in learning is fundamental.

  4. We must all be a LIFE LONG LEARNER! We must daily embrace learning and seek for opportunity to improve our skill on a daily basis.My Project ”Project Save Nigeria Technical College is seeking for opportunity to improve Vocational and Technical Education in Nigeria.

  5. Hi, I am entrepreneur essien from Nigeria, I want all friend and campus members to know that Fritz Fleischmann says that The nature of being an entrepreneur means that you fully embrace ambiguity and are comfortable with being challenged regularly. Especially when having to go out for startup fundraising. Choosing this career path is completely irrational because the odds of succeeding are dismal, but most succeed because of their unwavering belief, laser focus on delivering and persistence. This is something that we see constantly at CoFoundersLab company I lead, which is one of the largest networks for entrepreneurs.

    Starting a company is a riveting roller coaster of emotions with tremendous highs and at times, difficult lows, but one thing that always helps me through the ups and downs is to connect with some of the greatest minds. Below are just a few of my favorite quotes

    1. The best way to predict the future is to create it.

    Peter Drucker

    2. Winners never quit and quitters never win.

    Vince Lombardi

    Please I urge campus members to triggers my comments to ALL in their regions Vote me 16245, bye

    • Hi, Inyang! I read through your comment and I was my mind was blown (more than Davido was). You appear to be a well read man with a lot of experience. Infact, I must tell you that I will love to work with you in the future.

  6. This article but speaks my mind about learning. We learn every day and the only way we need to equip ourselves to keep pace with the world’s changing technological advancement is through constant learning. I could remember I posted an article on this about how one can learn from peers, on social media, online, from collaborations and the likes. Learning is very necessary to keep striving for skill advancements and career growth.

  7. I agree with this article learning will never end and it will not only happen in the classroom but even out side, and in life one can only go ahead if the never stop learning and with Regina its true we should have passion in this and be lifelong learning learner.

  8. With advances in technology, it’s never been easier for curious individuals to learn whatever they want whenever they want. You no longer have to wait five months for a conference or a whole year for a book release. You can learn something new right now online, often for free. This type of learning can be just as useful as more traditional methods.

    • @fisea
      Don’t go far. Just see how much learning has taken place on this campus. We have all the knowledge an entrepreneur needs to make remarkable changes in our lives and those of others

      • I don;t think we have all the knowledge an entrepreneur needs. Each day we should focus on learning more and more. [lifelong-learner for ever (*_*)]

  9. Today’s lifelong learners are lucky to live in this day and age where these types of on-demand services are becoming available for all areas of life! How cool to be able to fit your learning into your busy life in a way that works for you.
    Ioannis Emmanouil Kosmadakis
    Founder & Chief Troublemaker of ‘fisea – Book your Fishing Holidays’

  10. I agree because according to me knowledge is not related to age. If we take learning as our best hobby than how can we stop learning at same stage of our life. I don’t think so. Hobby is the thing that we can do the day long without tiredness. Learning for me is a hobby and every one should take it as…

    • @iramafzal
      Learning truly is an everyday thing. We can learn formally, as in classes, informally as in from clan elders or non formally as in you are on your own doing regular stuff them you come upon a realisation.

  11. and one more thing don’t learn any thing just because you want a job or successful career. For me the one who just loves to learn something and do it lifelong’ not because he/she wants job but they love it. Success will run behind them. Not they have to run behind success.

  12. Learning is interesting. Traditional teachers used to teach. Now we focus on the kids and thus we look for learning activities. Nowadays, after the formal school programs, they say learning is yet to begin. All that we do outside classroom are learning activities.

    Knowledge is vast. Learning is endless.

  13. Hello

  14. No one should ever consider that they know everything, this stops your process of learning new things in life. There are still children in many countries are not getting the advantage of Education. We need to find ways to help the, I have already adopted one child as Education supporter. I encourage more and more people to do this.

  15. Function, not Convention
    Many of our examples demonstrate the entrepreneurs’ independent spirit above all. They are either
    free from, or are able to shake off convention. Conversely, this means there is promise of success if I
    regard everything I find in place as convention, at least until the opposite has been proven. I examine
    the processes without being intimidated and ask myself whether those things that were still thought to
    be reasonable in the past can now be organized more simply using modern methods. I don’t settle for
    making a service or product a little cheaper, better, more efficient, smarter or more environmentally
    friendly, but instead I challenge the entire process, that is, I start to fundamentally rethink how it would
    be possible to organize the functions under current conditions.

  16. When someone ‘Googled’ the phrase “What is a lifelong learner” he/she will found this statement, which I believe is a fair reflection of what a lifelong learner is: “the ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons”.

  17. Learning is a constant process. There is an ancient saying ” from rocker till your last breath should learn”. Learn, it keeps you simple, humble and finds the true meaning of life. And that is gratitude, keeps you motivated and more importantly give the courage to believe in your abilities.

  18. We must all be a LIFE LONG LEARNER! We must daily embrace learning and seek for opportunity to improve our skill on a daily basis.My Project ”Project Save Nigeria Technical College is seeking for opportunity to improve Vocational and Technical Education

  19. WE NOW ACCEPT THE FACT THAT LEARNING IS A LIFELONG PROCESS OF KEEPING ABREAST OF CHANGE. AND THE MOST PRESSING TASK IS TO TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO LEARN.”
    – Peter Drucker

  23. “All we can thus far say about the duration of the units of [the business cycle] and each of [its] two phases is that it will depend on the nature of the particular innovations that carry a cycle,… and the financial conditions and habits prevailing in the business community in each case.”

I believe that quality education will birth solutions that will unlock other Sustainable goals.”

    – Olabanji Jackson-oke, Nigeria

  26. When College students finish their exam, the popular talk is “As for me, this holiday, I am not even going to read a sign board”. It then begs the question, how do we change this mindset of thinking that we only read when we are in school?

  27. Entrepreneurship can be a tough path–and a long, grueling one. Littered with false starts and failures, it tends to trigger a rollercoaster of emotions: excitement, despair, determination, and confusion, to name a few.

    Because it’s so rarely linear (just try to find a successful entrepreneur who hasn’t fallen flat on his or her face at some point), the thing is requires more than anything is stamina: You’ve got to be able to keep going even when you don’t feel like it, and draw on deep reserves of energy to go to the distance.

  29. CEO: Tesla and Spacex

    Bold move: All of them

    There’s no denying that Elon Musk is a visionary. But there’s also no denying that he’s got room for improvement. Tesla is a well-publicized mess — behind on production, abandoned by its executives and embroiled in an SEC investigation. Musk, too, often appears to be a mess — increasingly erratic on Twitter, lurching from one PR crisis to the next. But in 2018, his company SpaceX launched and landed a giant rocket (and then booked the first passenger for a trip around the moon), his hyperloop technology scored a contract with the city of Chicago and his battery-making Gigafactory hit new strides. So is he a model to follow? “Beyond Musk’s undoubtable genius and grit, it takes a heavy dose of hubris to devote one’s life to pioneer technologies that promote the Earth’s sustainability, while simultaneously creating an intergalactic escape hatch if we collectively fail to save the planet,” says Leonard Sherman, a professor of business at Columbia University. “In keeping with the breathtaking ambition of his quest, Musk has certainly suffered many personal and technical setbacks along the way. But despite it all, entrepreneurs should remember Steve Jobs’ words. Bold, daring entrepreneurship is messy. It’s complex. But the crazy ones will get shit done.” But other experts think he’s more of a cautionary tale. Peter Cohan, lecturer of strategy at Babson College, urges entrepreneurs to learn from Musk’s mistakes. “The lessons that entrepreneurs should take from Elon Musk are clear: Put the highest priority on what is best for your company’s customers, employees, partners and investors. To do that, you must look at your strengths and weaknesses objectively. If you are not good at a skill that’s critical to deliver what stakeholders expect — now and in the future — you should partner with an executive who is. For all of Musk’s ambition and achievements, he seems unable or unwilling to do this.” Still not sure?

  30. Mother Teresa was an inspiration to countless millions for her lifelong devotion to the neediest and most vulnerable of the world. The selflessness and sacrifice with which she lived her own life made her an international symbol of charitable work, and the love and compassion she showed the destitute of all faiths won her a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, which she donated entirely to the poor.

  31. Henry Dunant Quotes and Sayings

    “I was a mere tourist with no part whatever in this great conflict; but it was my rare privilege, through an unusual train of circumstances, to witness the moving scenes that I have resolved to describe. In these pages I give only my personal impressions; so my readers should not look here for specific details, nor for information on strategic matters; these things have their place in other writings.”
    — Henry Dunant

    “Why could not advantage be taken of a time of relative calm and quiet to investigate and try to solve a question of such immense and worldwide importance, both from the humane and Christian standpoint?”
    Henry Dunant

    Christian Taken Trying

    “By Thy power, let there be peace, O God!”
    Henry Dunant

  32. Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

    I have always believed that the way you treat your employees is the way they will treat your customers, and that people flourish when they are praised.

    Whatever your goal is you will never succeed unless you let go of your fears and fly.

    Capitalism – which in its purest form is entrepreneurism even among the poorest of the poor – does work; but those who make money from it should put it back into society, not just sit on it as if they are hatching eggs.

    Hard-won things are more valuable than those that come too easily.
    Richard Branson

  33. 21 Quotes From Henry Ford On Business, Leadership And Life
    Erika Andersen
    Erika Andersen

    Careers

    I knew, before starting to write this post, what we all know about Henry Ford: founder of Ford Motor F +0%Company, seminal proponent of mass production in the form of the assembly line, creator of the Model T and author of the tart line, “you can have it in any color you want, as long as it is black.” Then one of my readers, Sagar Adhikari, shared a great Henry Ford quote in a comment he made on one of my posts. I was intrigued, and started doing a bit of research.

    As it turns out, Ford was a veritable font of pithy and insightful one-liners about business and leadership – and a fascinating human being, as well. He certainly had his dark side (he seems to have been anti-semitic for at least part of his life, believing in a world conspiracy of “Jewish financiers”), but he was at the same time hugely progressive and forward-thinking in many other ways. For example, he hired African-Americans, women and disabled people long before most other business owners did so, and was passionately committed to the principle of paying good wages to hire and keep the best employees. He was a relentless technological innovator, based on his commitment to creating “the best possible goods at the lowest possible price.” He focused on making ongoing changes in design and production that would drive down costs while improving the product. For instance, the inaugural Model T, released for sale in 1908, cost $825 (about $22,000 in present-day dollars); by 1916, he had reduced the cost by more than half – to $360, while increasing safety, reliability and speed. And for better or worse, Henry Ford – more than any other individual – made us a nation of car owners; at one point over half the families in America owned a Ford motor car.

    Here then, for your reading pleasure: 21 inspiring and very fresh quotes from this complex, remarkable man:

    There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: make the best quality goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.

    Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.

    Don’t find fault, find a remedy.

    Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

    Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.

    Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.

    Employers only handle the money – it is the customer who pays the wages.

  34. I thank Campus management to see the importance of learning so you come with free online training of which have so helpful to most of us at free of charge regardless of our economic standards.
    I’m also a true believer in learning for change and transformation

    my advice to all campus members is that we should invest much in acquiring knowledge because it gives right information that guides the right decisions
    technology is changing every time and the way of doing things also change

  35. What does an entrepreneur do? The first thing is they have given themselves permission to see a problem. Most people do not want to see problems … Once you see a problem and you keep looking at it you will find an answer.

    Bill Drayton

    Business, People, Entrepreneur

  36. “You need to say to everyone in the organization: “You are a change-maker. You can figure out what customers need. And if you also figure out how to make it work, you are a hero. You are going to do really well. You are going to be a role model for other people in the firm.” Everybody, including the doorman, is empowered. We should be doing the same thing in education organizations, in human rights organizations, in hotels chains and electronics firms – this is the transition to the Everyone a Changemaker world.”

    Well, almost everyone from the campus has been giving an emotional speech, I will try to not be long with mine..A big CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for all the support you have granted me since day one and which has been pushing me to do better each time. This journey has been long almost 4 months, but we have learned so many things here, from both negative and positive experiences. There has been many ups and downs, but we know we did our best, we supported as many idea/projects we could. Sometimes the blue bar motivated us, sometimes it did the reverse. I, personally obtained so many benefits from the campus, ranging from the online training, blogs, ideas/projects, to knowing myself as an entrepreneur, learning more about innovation and creativity, borrowing and the list goes on and on, but the most amazing thing was making so many entrepreneurship friends and educating many through my concepts and components.

    The whole world felt and sensed and convinced and intuitively believed in my idea GREEN RIBBON, hence you believe in LOVING LIFE and ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION. Healthy living and fresh breathe for cerebral palsy kids and teens that is even bad than CANCER yet they world ignore it.. We need sustainable actions for our planet. In GREEN RIBBON Start Ups, we are ideas generators with fun toward sustainable development and we need to protect nature, without which we cease to exist. THANKS!

    As a social innovation expert now, my job is to helps others create their start ups across borders. Ephraim Essien Nigeria Finalist Best Idea 2019

  54. I have never really thought about the future until Until two months
    ago an announcement was made at our school about one girl. She
    was seriously ill. She had cancer. A very aggressive form of it. The
    doctors in our country did everything they could for her. Still she was
    dying. Her only hope was the treatment that she could get in
    Germany. She needed minimum of 50 thousand Euros to be able to
    go and soon. The price of the human life. It’s a lot of money here. So
    her parents started raising funds wherever they could and
    eventually came to our school. Nowadays we have almost got used
    to such stories because after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station accident the rate of cancer
    among children in Belarus has increased 13 times. This power station is situated almost at the
    boarder of our Republic and right after the accident the wind was blowing north and carrying
    radioactive clouds in our direction So there are articles in newspapers, announcements on TV,
    Internet about kids dying of cancer who need urgent help.

  56. The wonderful thing is that as we decrease the scale of economic activity, we actually increase our own emotional well being. That is because at the deepest level localization is about connection. It is about re establishing our sense of interdependence with others and with the natural world. And this connection is a fundamental human need.

  57. ” I began my career as an economics professor but became frustrated because the economic theories I taught in the classroom didn’t have any meaning in the lives of poor people I saw all around me. I decided to turn away from the textbooks and discover the real-life economics of a poor person’s existence.”

    Muhammad Yunus

  64. It is a great honour for me to be “A 2019 Best Idea Finalist”: to follow in the footsteps of world-renowned thinkers and activists-many of whom, incidentally, I am happy to count among my friends and colleagues. An honour and also a source of great hope and strength: that an organisation as prestigious as The Entrepreneurship Campus should understand and value the role of economic localization in helping to create a more equitable and sustainable world. i thank you for your support and accept this global position as a finalist on behalf of the emerging worldwide localization movement; a movement that, I believe can not only help to prevent ecological devastation but also substantially improve the quality of life for the great majority of people on earth.
