“It is the studying that you do after your school days that really counts. Otherwise, you know only that which everyone else knows.” – Henry Doherty
How much studying do you do now?
Now this may be different than the studying you did in school. It includes reading, watching educational training videos, learning a new software or tool and attending workshops. How often do you do any of these?
When you want to be successful, the learning must continue throughout your lifetime. Just think of the people who have chosen to ignore learning about the computer. I’m sure you have met or know a few. In today’s world, this has become such a powerful tool. For those who decided they didn’t need it, they are being left at a huge disadvantage. Do you want to be this type of person?
Many people feel once they graduate school, they don’t need to continue learning. If they stop there, they only know now what everyone else knows. They are a commodity in the world since they know the same things as many others. This means you will be priced and paid based on what the lowest cost is someone can get for your information.
When you want to become valuable to others and be compensated in a way you want, you must become the expert in an area. With the speed at which today’s world changes, to become and stay the expert, lifetime learning is necessary.
Make the commitment to yourself and your future to always be a student. Find opportunities to learn in your everyday life. Seek out the specialized knowledge which will help you reach your goals. Then put this information into practice on a regular basis to sharpen your skills. This is the effort which pays off big for your present and your future.
