The world has, overtime, moved from the Industrial Age through the Information Age then to the Knowledge Age. The ability to obtain, assimilate and apply the right knowledge effectively, has become a key skill in this age. That is why people’s ability is no longer judged solely by qualifications gained in the past, but also assessed by their capacity to learn and adapt in the future.
One of my exciting things to do is learning. I read, ask questions, listen, watch, observe and visit to learn. I am never ashamed to admit ignorance in any area I lack knowledge. You really don’t have to know everything but I am constantly learning new things as I navigate anywhere I find myself in. It is something that impacts every aspect of my everyday existence.
“If you limit yourself to what you already know, you’ll only do what you’ve always done, and you’ll keep getting what you’ve always had” -Bishop T.D Jakes
Learning Opens the Door to Choices.

“When you know better you do better” – Maya Angelou.
