How will this site help you?
For those who are fortunate to be in a career they enjoy, lifelong learning, especially if done deliberately in terms of acquisition of relevant and meaningful information can make you indispensable to your employer or facilitate faster promotions, or just more transferable skills in anticipation of your next move.
For those out of work, engaging in your own development has never been easier or more cost effective. Democratized access to knowledge puts brand new skills within reach that were previously inaccessible without physical presence or a significantly large investment of time and capital.
“But in an age of accelerating change, when even the most sophisticated skills are quickly outdated, we will find many allies in the developing world who are coming to understand that the most important skill anyone can learn is the ability to go on learning”.
