Learn, unlearn and relearn
About a month ago I received this quote in my inbox from Max Shapiro that I can’t seem to get out of my head.
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”
– Alvin Toffler
I think I’m still young but even I am sometimes overwhelmed by new technologies and get tired at the thought of having to ‘unlearn’ my old habits and ‘relearn’ another new exciting technique. They say you are never too old to learn but you might just get too tired to invest time and energy in learning.
But, as Toffler explains, I need to keep up and persuade myself to keep evolving.
