Learning is a never-ending process. Much like change, it is a human constant. Learning has no age limit. You learn as soon as you exist until you cease to be. In the early years of our life, we give a lot of time and effort for learning and development. However, it is worth noting that as we grow, we give less time to improve ourselves. What we learn in our youth is basically just the foundation. The most significant part of learning and development is when we realize our talents and take on a career. This part becomes the machine part of existing, where we find our comfort zone and give back what we have learned to our society.
Learning can be done in several different ways, whether it is formal or informal learning. We can take some courses that can add value to our performance at work. Learning a new language or a musical instrument through classes, for example. On the other hand, we can learn by informal means such as listening to a TED Talk or watching tutorial videos on youtube. Informal learning is the most suitable one for the adults who are already working because of the flexibility it offers with time.
We should always develop ourselves. Engaging in learning activities not only enriches your personal capacity, but it can have a profound and significant effect on your professional side as well. Engaging in a hobby can, of course, ease your stress and help you explore activities your work would otherwise afford. It can also be a source of joy and time spent with friends or family who share the interest Engaging in profession-related learning can lead to significant advances in your career path. For instance, a promotion. You might be gunning for requires that you garner a Ph.D. or a Master’s Degree and thus, seeking them is quite beneficial indeed.
In this very competitive world, we will stay behind others and ourselves if we do not learn continuously and learn hard enough. As we look forward to your growth, we should be encouraged and motivated to engage in continuous learning and improve ourselves regularly to truly succeed.
