It’s taken me 70 years to learn most of these life lessons, and some of them I’m still struggling to master. For me, the key is to keep on learning. Learn from your mistakes, your failures, your successes, from everything you see, hear, and experience. I make a conscious effort to learn something new each day, even if I have no idea of how I will make use of that skill, concept, or bit of information. When I stop learning, I stop growing, and then I’ll die. It’s really that simple. Thanks for the thought-provoking article.
