You know the saying, if you’re not growing, then you’re stagnating? And if you’re stagnating, you’re dying. Okay, it’s a bit harsh but it’s true. We die if we stop learning, stop growing, and stop challenging ourselves.

Yet most adults give up on their learning as soon as they leave school. Not good. How do we fix this?

Check out the comic below. Wisdom in the form of a quirky drawing.

    We do learn something new every day, if we want to or not. We are faced with challenges and we have to learn what we did not know before. The learning does not have to be formal, but it has to be, and truly, when you stop learning you die, or at least your soul dies.

    Yes, we're all learning every day. You'd have to be brain dead not to and, likely, couldn't survive if you weren't. Getting yourself into a higher orbit, so to speak, with your thinking is a different matter.
    I'm afraid I did not enjoy school. It could have been a wonderful time of life but was ruined, for me, by too many bad people in the school environment who should not even have been there.

    I like the idea of whole life learning. As a physiician I read a lot to keep myself as an uptodate and safe practionner; but the scope of reading/learning is too specific and limited to my profession. please do introduce me to some exciting new fields so I could feel younger,interested and interesting like my college days………..

    Education is a continuing learning process ending with death only. Education that fits a scholar to be one day marooned is defective. Everyday we learn new things even without our conscious knowledge. But as is rightly meant by the cartoons, conscious additions to the knowledge bank is the key work. Thanks.

    Life is a journey with learning. Learning never ends, until we die. Great work. Thank you.
