There are a lot of things to be learned in the world. You could begin right now reading book after book during every minute of the rest of your life and you could still not read all of the books that have been written. The amount of knowledge that is possible to learn is literally endless. However, just because you will never learn everything there is to know does not mean that you should not make an effort to always be getting an education from life.
The late legendary coach John Wooden once said, “It’s what you learn after you think you know it all that counts.” and that is true especially for those of us who are in business. You have to be open to the new and rearranging of the old in order to grow.
“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” said Jim Rohn.

Don’t rush the process of education and learning or it will become stressful and unappealing. Don’t worry if it takes you longer to learn to ice skate or to research about influence than you had planned. The fact that you are learning new things and increasing your education will be the most important thing.
The ability to continue our education long beyond our days of school is truly a gift. Accept this gift and use it wisely while you can.
To your success!
