Logic Of The Day: 26.12.2017
One of the best kept secrets of the highly successful is the ability to keep learning something new every day in their field or related fields. The hallmark of learning is curiosity. Peter Drucker the father of modern management is an excellent example of someone who kept learning till the end of his life. He was always learning something new.
When we learn something every day it keeps our mind sharp and it also gives a sense of accomplishment as we are using our time wisely. There is no end to this journey of continuous learning.
One great example of creativity and curiosity is Jony Ive of Apple. I recently read about how he masterminded Apple's new headquarters. Norman Foster, whose architecture firm was hired by Apple to build the headquarters at a reported cost of $5 billion, calls him “a poet.” Here is what he said about Jony Ive in this WSJ piece WSJ article on Jony Ive. He said ‘‘Jony works tirelessly at the detail, evolving, improving, refining. For me, that makes him a poet.’’
Peter Drucker said "The only thing that will not be obsolete is learning new skills." “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” Mahatma Gandhi.
