Why We Should Never Stop Learning

In this constantly changing, rapidly evolving and chaos driven age it is impossible for us not to learn new things.

To quote Roy T Bennett – “No matter how much experience you have, there’s always something new you can learn and room for improvement.”

Every day there are new updates on your phones and tablets, improving, updating and adding new information and the same should apply to us. To keep up to date with all the new upgrades, platforms, apps and even gadgets we must learn how to use them. Within the workplace it is imperative to be on top of your game to future-proof your expertise within your chosen field. By doing this you can offer the most efficient and up to date service for your clients.

It is also good to re-learn things if you have been ‘out of the game’ for any period or to keep abreast of new products and services.

Learning new skills or honing the skills you already have creates a ‘can do’ frame of mind and gives you the confidence to expand your skillset. You can bring alternative suggestions to the table and really offer the best solutions to your clients.

Here are some of the benefits from learning new things:

  • Money – the more you learn and widen your skillset and experiences, the more earning potential you have
  • Longer life – there is a link between life expectancy and education level, therefore the more you keep learning then the healthier you are likely to be!
  • Happiness – people in learning environments have a wider and more diverse social circle, also the rate of depression is lower for adults who are actively involved in learning activities.
  • Good example – showing your children that you value and indeed enjoy learning encourages them to do the same.
  • Peace of mind – when people learn they gain confidence for trying out new things resilience to tackle new challenges.

Remember, knowledge is power, challenge yourself and reap the benefit of the personal fulfilment, now where’s that college prospectus………
