Never Stop Learning

If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.

It feels so good to be back!  I have been insanely busy finishing up yet another round of continuing education classes (and with top honors too!) In my final weeks of classes as I was cramming for tests, writing long papers, and losing some much needed sleep, I questioned why I was even taking these courses. Technically, I do not need them. I have a job, a prior education, and years of experience in my field. But, if I have learned one thing from my athletic career, it is that you should never stop learning for the game will never stop changing. 

Knowledge is essential to life and the way we live it. When we stop learning, we stop living. Pick up a book, visit a museum, read the paper, travel, experience, and learn. We walk around with devices that contain endless information and yet, we watch cat videos and play mindless games (Oh Candy Crush, why are you so addicting?) Do not just believe what is popular on your news feeds, take the time and research. Aim to be the best at your job, take your school studies seriously, stop and listen to those that have been there before, and soak up every bit of knowledge that is available to you. No matter if you are young or old, a beginner or master, never stop learning...
