I graduated college - isn't that enough learning for one lifetime?
Life teaches me lessons every day, I'm all set right?
I do crosswords and sudoku on a regular basis, is that enough brain-exercise?
NO, NO, & NO.
In today's episode, I'm going to explain to you why continuous learning at the workplace, through your career, and indeed throughout your life is important for things like maintaining your mental health, happiness, productivity, motivation and neuroplasticity.
Research shows that those who continue to learn throughout life and career aren't just healthier and happier - they are wealthier too: pushing yourself outside your comfort zone to learn new things and renegotiate neural networks pushes you further along in life; grants you greater adaptability, flexibility and nimbleness cognitively; allows for more respect and promotions; increases your brain's health and capacity; and leads to decreased levels of disorder, dementia, disease and decline in your later years.
Lifelong learners also show higher levels of higher-order problem solving, creativity, productivity, motivation, functionality, effectiveness, innovation, adaptability, flexibility, psychological resilience, coping, happiness and the list goes on!
