Never stop learning

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.

Remember:

Everything can be taken away but your education.
