It means there is no treading water in life, no running in place, no standing still. If you're not continually learning-if you're not taking advantage of opportunities to increase and use your knowledge-you're not on an upward path and if you're not heading upward, you're heading in the other direction.
Continuous learning means:
- You haven't got it all figured out but are open to new possibilities. You're alert to finding opportunities in classes, programs, internships, and jobs.
- You try to develop your talents to the fullest by learning from people who have more experience than you do, usually adults. It means getting a team on your side, so you're not setting out on your journey alone.
- Most of all, it means continuously adjusting your course in life, as you learn from mistakes and apply what you've learned to new challenges and opportunities.
