Being curious will help you continually learn. As an entrepreneur, it is important to never stop learning. It doesn’t matter if you have 12 Masters degrees and have written one thousand award-winning books, there is always something new to learn. If you’re wise, the learning process shouldn’t stop the day you bid the campus farewell. That diploma or degree may testify that you’ve been educated, but education and wisdom aren’t the same thing, nor are education and learning synonymous.
Learning is undoubtedly a lifetime pursuit. By keeping your mind open to new possibilities you open yourself up to an unimaginable realm of continuous knowledge.
