Importance of Lifelong Learning

Many people think that their learning time is over when they have graduated from college and after that their earning time or job life starts. So, they think now they have to do a job and earn money by working 8 to 10 hours every day and this becomes a routine. If you think like this then rethink about it because if you want to transform your life, if you want to bring a revolution and if you want to become best in your field then you have to stick to lifelong learning. Lifelong learning can make you ahead of all ordinary people who are only following the routines made by their bosses in the office or by their society.

Lifelong learning doesn't imply that you bought a book and you started mugging up. If you are not understanding anything, if you are not applying the principles which you learned then reading every day is of no use. So try to read 1 hour daily and focus more on understanding and applying that knowledge.
