As life goes on and we ascend the ladder of age, a lot of the time we think ourselves either too experienced or too long in the tooth to learn new things or new ways of doing old things.  But knowledge has no age or ending and while we are still walking on the well-trodden path of ours, the world has not seized to spin-changes in eternity.  So, why do we spate or alienate ourselves from something as natural as change and the process of learning?  Why do we deliberately sabotage ourselves and stunt our growth?  Why do we then blame everything else around us for the things that they happen to us?  Do we not then make a self-fulfilling prophecy for ourselves?

These are all rhetorical but self-searching questions.  We need to ask these from ourselves on a regular basis lest we think ourselves above the elements of change and externalities.  This issue deals with ways to make the process of self-understanding and discovery smoother and more understandable.  May it be someone who is starting a new or someone who has been at it for a long time.  There is always something new or unique to learn a new perspective or an innovative technique that not only stimulates the fertile mind but also saves time and brings further ripples of change in the world. 


Idea has been taken from an article in a local magazine

Thank you very much, onee. Good to see you on my site after quite a gap.

Agree with you, Mishaikh.

Whatever our age, learning never stops. I'd say if we stop learning, our brain will be dull. Just like our stomach, it needs eating everyday, so our brain does. It need knowledge. :)

Just I think there comes a time in every persons life, where we have to ask us selves the question " why me" because of different reasons.

Here we say;

"We learn as long as we live". This has something to do with having goals in life and personal development.

Nice writing, thank you for sharing.

Great blog! You know, Mishaikh, it is an eternal question... We are learning something new till the end, and we don't do it in the same time... And i think, the situation will not change in future... And if look at this question from the point "We spending our expensive time if don't learning something" then life looks so fast and short! Thank you for sharing!
