When we stop learning we stop living. That might seem like a pretty extreme statement but it’s reality. Living to me consists of experiencing new things, taking chances and growing as a person.
If we aren’t constantly growing as people we will stagnate and when you stop growing you start withering away.
The reason it’s frustrating to see people who stop learning is there are so many ways to learn. The obvious one would be formal education but there are so many other options as well.
Read a book
Join a book club
Attend (and listen to) a speech
Go to a conference
Attend a seminar
Join a discussion group
Those are just a a few ideas off the top of my head.
Whether you participate in some type of formal or informal education, make a point to learn something new every day.
Keep learning and keep living
