I've always been a proponent of learning... always learning. In my college classes, I like to say, "If you stop learning, you stop."
Now, a new poll from the Gallup Organization (here) highlights some surprising stuff about lifelong learning. The main point from this study is 65% of people with college (undergraduate) degrees say they "learn or do something interesting every day". This is about the same as people with some college education (65%), only high school education (65%) and with no high school diploma (63%). However, people with Graduate degrees score higher (74%).
Apparently, a BA or BS degree doesn't prompt learning after college as you might think (and as college mission statements imply). ...At least, for some.
With that in mind, I'm going to share thoughts on this blog that you may have not known in hopes that it might continue to inspire you (and me, since I'll be looking for these tidbits) to continue to learn and grow. I hope you will enjoy them.
Back to Gallup, they quote the French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery (who authored The Little Prince) as saying, "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea."
Join me in yearning for that vast and endless sea.
