“Learning is like rowing upstream; not to advance is to drop back.” 

~Chinese Proverb


I firmly believe that to succeed in this life, we must be lifelong learners.  Curiosity is key, as is awareness of what knowledge might benefit you most.  Read extensively.  Spend time with interesting, talented people.  Try to avoid negative people and content, but don’t ignore them either.  There is great learning from negative people and situations, as long as you don’t get sucked into their negativity.   But no matter what, keep learning!  Because once you stop learning, you don’t just stop growing, you actually move backwards into a smaller and smaller universe as the rest of the world continues advancing.  What are you learning today?  What have you learned from reading this JAM?
