The importance of self development is taking on new meaning in our lives. Many of us believe that learning happens only in schools or colleges. We fail to see that learning is in fact an on-going process and it can happen to anyone, anywhere and anytime.
As individuals living in this fast moving society, it is crucial that we remain knowledgeable and competitive. What we know and how proficient we are in the skills that we have acquired determines our "market-value", efficiency and competency level. It is therefore important that we "invest" in ourselves to constantly upgrade by continuously learning new skills or bettering those that we have already acquired.
We are witnessing a fundamental shift taking place in our economy and society. It is driven by globalization, knowledge, technology and innovation. The new economy has as its cornerstones knowledge, skills, innovation and enterprise. Its most valuable assets are knowledge and creativity.
The successful economies of the future will excel at generating and disseminating knowledge and exploiting it commercially. Dream without knowledge is like a boat on dry land; it can take you no where. One of the greatest joys known to man is to take a flight into ignorance in search of knowledge.
So what are you waiting for? Empower yourself with knowledge and right skill sets and explore the world of opportunities waiting for you.
