I can’t help but feel sad for some people when they say, “I’m no longer in school so I don’t have to worry about learning something new anymore”.
I strive to learn at least one new thing a day. Too many people really do believe that “learning” is only reserved for school. But all of life is a school and we continue to learn from the moment we are born until the moment we die, even if we don’t want to see it as learning.
Education is right at our fingertips these days; books, newspaper articles, magazine articles, webpages and blogs, even social media. Yet it seems that fewer and fewer people now read books for enjoyment, let alone to enhance their education.
When I’ve asked people about this, I’m always dismayed by their answer;
“I don’t have time for that shit.”
