Mark Cuban , the self-made billionaire was once interviewed and was asked – “What’s the most important advice you can give to anyone out there?”. Mark Cuban paused for a while and then he said – ” You must learn to learn and learn to learn fast”. I was struck by such a simple , short but cogent advice . I felt like He was talking to me . If you ever feel like you know it all, you already lost. Learn to learn fast seems to me like , one has to get up quick from any adversity ,learn from it, & keep surging forward. Ever since I watched that interview , I spend almost every waking hour trying to learn something. From conversations, to watching people around me, to reading books including watching great contents on YouTube. We are now living in the age of information , but what baffles me the most is that people are not getting any smarter. The reason is because most people are curious but they’ve decided to settle. Ego has rendered some people stuck on a spot because they feel too big to ask or they’re afraid to “look” stupid. I’ll rather *look* stupid temporarily than remain stupid permanently.
From what I’ve learned so far already, I believe that if one isn’t learning to learn, then one is learning to drown. The word learn literally means – “To acquire, or attempt to acquire knowledge or an ability to do something”. From the above definition of the word learn, it is obvious that if you’re NOT acquiring knowledge, then you’re gone. Learn from others. Learn from your blessings and your errors. Learn from someone else’s blunders. Learn something vital today. If what you’re learning is not moving you any closer to your victory, then, you’re basically just existing. Start living today. Start growing today . Start exploring today. Arouse your curiosity today. Start paying attention today. Enough of the petty talks, start listening today. Learn quickly and learn more. Whether you know Mark Cuban or not, I believe it’s important to heed his concise but cogent advice – Learn to learn!
Get rid of your pathetic ego and take this one advice really serious. Remember ; If you’re not chasing knowledge, then , you’re chasing shadows! Aim to acquire sound knowledge or you aim to acquire sound ignorance – Your choice!
