There is one piece of advice which I have received from a very young age and has been pivotal in my life.
Therefore, whenever I’m mentoring someone I’m making sure that it is one of the first concepts to discuss with them:
Never stop learning!
Lifelong learning is the concept of pursuing additional education and the development of further skills beyond an individual’s formal or compulsory education.
Why is it important?
- It’s good for your brain — research has shown that learning helps to keep the brain healthy.
- It can help you feel more fulfilled and happier.
- You can build up your skills which can help to advance in your career and when luck strikes to be equipped to grab the opportunity.
Everything can be taken away but your education.
