New learning

You’re never too old, too knowledgeable or too experienced to learn something new. It can be positively energizing to learn a new skill or to improve significantly on an existing one.

One big hindrance to new learning is the assumption that you already know enough. In a world where knowledge is increasing at an unimaginable and accelerating pace, that’s an assumption that can get you in trouble.

Be truly thankful for what you know. Then make even better use of that knowledge by building on it.

Your mind benefits from challenging mental exercise just as your body benefits from rigorous physical activity. Keep your mind in great shape by opening it up to new and invigorating challenges.

Make your valuable life experience even more valuable by adding new skills and knowledge to it. With each new thing you learn come great new opportunities.

Open your mind to new learning. And enrich every area of your life.

— Ralph Marston
