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.
Forget a Mentor, find a Sponsor! The new way to fast-track your career.
Don't get me wrong, mentors and role model matters, and you need them, Mentors can build your self-esteem and provide a sounding board but they are not your best ticket to the top.
Who's pulling for you? Who's got your back? Who's putting your hat in the ring? Odds are this person is not a mentor but a sponsor.
In the future, may be “Headhunters” become more “Heart-hunters”…
Perhaps companies don´t need people exceptionally intelligent but people who have passion for what they do. Thus, professionals develop their creativity, intuition , curiosity and commitment to make things happen.

The greatest challenge of our age is not only to live connected to one another through technology; but also to do so in ways that are beneficial to our own well-being, effective in our work, and useful to the world. To live with greater wisdom, purpose, and meaning while using technology in ways that create a more open and healthy culture.
