CONTINUING YOUR EDUCATION
Dec. 12, 2016
Today’s world is rapidly changing. People who don’t stay up to speed can get left behind. You may know people who were laid off when their industry changed because they didn’t change with it. We see many bankruptcy clients in this situation.
Continuing your education is vital to ensure you stay relevant in your workplace. It’s also important for your personal growth and well-being.
Continuing your education doesn’t mean that you have to go back to school. It doesn’t mean you have to spend any money at all. And you don’t have to confine your education to the field you currently work in.
If you’re interested in new ideas and willing to learn, you can continue your education wherever you are.
There are a tremendous number of classes available on the internet. Many of them are free, and those that aren’t free are usually inexpensive. Check out Coursera, Udacity, Udemy, or EdX. You can learn about almost anything if you’re willing to dedicate the time.
You can also sign up for a class in your community. Community education classes are generally low-cost, and they’re a great way to check out something new.
Let’s not forget about what you can learn by a visit to your local library. Books have been written on nearly every topic. If you don’t have time or inclination to read, choose an audiobook. Consistently expose yourself to new ideas, and you’ll never stop learning.
Continue your education. You may find a new passion, or become more skilled at things you already love. If you are always working to learn something new, you’ll be ready for the changes that will inevitably come your way.
