Continous Self Learning

Learning Skills - Continous Self Learning

Our requirements of knowledge are constantly changing – driven by new responsibilities that we take on and constant changes that are taking place in the marketplace. The only way to remain relevant and at the top of our game, is through a process of continuous and constant self-learning.

Importance of Continous & Self Learning

Learning Skills quote by Al Ries - The only way to win is to learn faster than anyone else

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

Jim Rohn
Learning Skills quote by Stephen Covey - This is the single most powerful investment we can ever make in life —investment in ourselves

Sharpen your saw: Suppose you were to come upon someone in the woods working feverishly to saw down a tree. “What are you doing?” you ask. “Can’t you see?” comes the impatient reply. “I’m sawing down this tree.”. “You look exhausted!” you exclaim. “How long have you been at it?”. “Over five hours,” he returns, “and I’m beat! This is hard work.”. “Well, why don’t you take a break for a few minutes and sharpen that saw?” you inquire. “I’m sure it would go a lot faster.”.“I don’t have time to sharpen the saw,” the man says emphatically. “I’m too busy sawing!”

Learning Skills quote by Austin Kleon - School is one thing. Education is another. The two don’t always overlap. Whether you’re in school or not, it’s always your job to get yourself an education.

  • your skills and your ability to do, is what will become more relevant in the future. 

Reading Books

Learning Skills quote by Robin S. Sharma  - Reading a book by someone you respect allows some of their brilliance to rub off on you.
Learning Skills quote by Robin S. Sharma - Cut back on your rent or cut back on what you spend on food but never worry about investing money in a good book.

Online / Offline Learning

Learning Skills quote by Donna J. Abernathy - Online learning is not  the next big thing,  it is the now big thing.
Learning Skills quote by Marushia Dark - Most of the important things in life   I learned online, at work, from experience,   or by talking to people. A real education   barely costs anything but time and effort and sometimes heartache.
Learning Skills quote by Bernard Kelvin Clive - Ten years from now it wont really matter what school you attended, whether online or offline education, free or paid, widely known or not,   what will matter most is what you learned,   the skills you acquired and how you leveraged it.   Use every opportunity to better yourself.
