Learning and Growing Old

The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as you’re learning, you’re not old.”

Rosalyn S.Yalow

The days start to get really boring when you only stick with what you know. They say knowledge is power, but the real power is in the learning: when we get curious, enthusiastic, receptive, and engaged.
When we put ourselves in new situations and learn more about what we can do. When we consider new ideas and see the world from a totally new light. When we learn about new people, and in doing so, learn more about ourselves.
What’s even more powerful is taking that knowledge and doing something with it, even if it’s just one small action: one email to someone you now understand better, or one call to someone who can help you get the job you’ve since learned you may enjoy.
