Life is a circle, easily identified by anyone who gives it some thought. It is a process, a course of systematic actions followed time and again by all individuals on Earth. Here, I am not talking about the process of birth, adolescence, teenage, and so on, but rather other practices that are followed lifelong. For instance, eating – something we do all our life. Then there is sleeping; heard of a human who does not sleep? I think not.
But there are other processes we do not think of. For example, learning. Learning is a practice one follows all their life. Learning to walk, to talk, how to behave, conduct business, and so on. What one learns changes in each stage of life, but the need to learn stays constant. And it is followed closely by personal growth, for when one learns, one grows.
But why the need to grow? I mean, I’ve learnt the basic skills in life; I know to walk, talk, eat, and sleep. Isn’t that all one needs? Barely. One needs to grow to stay relevant. Imagine. You are a teacher, but your skills haven’t evolved to apply the new teaching techniques in your classroom. Would you be rated as the most efficient teacher? I think not. And the same rule applies to all professionals. Even House Wives! If they do not grow, how will they keep up with their children? And you have to keep up to be idolized and respected.
So learn. And grow. And learn some more. The learning and growing journey never ends. And is facilitated very easily. There are books, there is the internet, there are discussion forums, and there are experts to offer their advice. Or simply, click on the Learning Resources tab on the top right of this screen, and explore. Drop us an email, and let us ease the process. Start learning NOW – you’re running out of excuses not to!
