We can´t stop learning at the age of 21. Learning is not confined to childhood or the classroom, but occurs throughout life and in a range of situations. It is the ongoing, voluntary and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances competitiveness and employability; but also social inclusion, active citizenship and personal development.
Take ownership of your learning. The “Teach ME” days are over. You are in charge of your own learning. Don’t put your learning in the hands of anyone else. You are responsible for learning from everything and everyone.
Don’t wait for them to tell you in a class. Learning is like Leadership, it can be learned, but cannot be taught.
Great professionals need agents the same way that sports figures, actors and artists need them.
Professionals who are really good at what they do are highly sought and they need someone to manage their commitments, jobs and projects. The role of the headhunter will flip.
I am my own brand. What differentiates you from the rest?
What makes you different from the pack in a competitive and changing environment? If you don’t know what makes you different and you don’t communicate your message, then how can you expect others to know?
