E-books, for instance, are proliferating at an astounding rate. Everything from fiction to technical manuals is available in this exciting format. Most persons are generally in a hurry, busy with a variety of family and work related tasks, with little time available for reading lengthy, conventional, “fat” books. E-books provide a practical alternative offering tremendous benefits of value, time savings and convenience.
Audio books are another great source of information allowing us to multi-task. While busy with another activity, we have ability to listen to latest advancements in our field, personal development or even learn a new language. There are a variety of available formats: dinosaur cassette, CD’s and now MP3 player. I have been listening to audio books for years as I drive, taking advantage of “drive-time university” to further my knowledge and gain information instead of feeding my brain useless material from radio. Part of my daily workout is a lengthy, brisk walk each evening, where you will find me with my CD player “velcro’d” to my sweatshirt feeding me nutritious “brain food” from a variety of authors and speakers. You can do it too.
Continuous learning is a necessity, becoming more important than ever before. The need to learn faster is rapidly becoming mandatory, as change accelerates around us.

Consider subscribing to theory of life-long learning, where your education doesn’t end in high school or even after 2-4 years at college, but continues for life. After all, entire world and our personal place in it are quite dynamic.
Thanks to technology, each of us has opportunity to affect an ever expanding segment of population as well as to be exposed to new ideas and technical advancements from across globe, all in blink of an eye. You can count on fact that this rate of change will continue to escalate and your opportunities will increase. Your ability to take appropriate advantage of these monumentous occurrences however, is a function of your ongoing self-education. Quick response to new information is critical. Learning faster is essential.
Available information is now doubling every few years and is increasing daily. Our world will continue to grow smaller. Opportunities abound. If you don’t have a plan for continuous self-education and learning at an accelerated rate, you will be left behind.
