Become A Life-Long Learner

Commit yourself to being a lifelong learner. Knowledge is power. Make an effort to learn something new today. Sharpen your skills and hone your talents. Don't forget to share!

If we do not plant knowledge when young, it will give us no shade when we are old.
-Lord Chesterfield

Things you can do to enhance your personal development:
*read a book
*attend a seminar
*join in on a teleclass
*visit a museum exhibit
*pick up a newspaper
*talk with your kids (you'd be surprised at what you could learn)
*chat with a senior citizen
*go back to school
*join a Toastmasters club

The list is endless. Be creative and have fun. Learning can be enjoyable and goes a long way in extending your productivity. There are health benefits to learning too! Studies have shown that those people who actively feed their minds are less likely to develop Alzheimer's and other cognitive impairments as they age.

Let those cerebral muscles flex!
