Learning is a lifelong process. No matter how long you live or how many degrees you earn in life, there will always be something you don't know. In this vast world of ever increasing technology, it is important to keep an open mind and an eye out for learning opportunities. Lifelong learning is the self-motivated pursuit of knowledge.

All you have to do is be open, be teachable, ask questions, and explore.
