Human nature and the human mind is always seeking to learn – from life in the womb of the mother until death itself.
Once born, it is said that most of the brain development is completed in 3 years. However, we know that the human mind is always curious and looking to learn new things.
We learn during early childhood at home, growing up with family and neighbourhood. Then we go to formal schooling and our natural curiosity and interests in diverse areas continue for learning to happen, at classrooms via teaching-learning processes, in the peer group, from the environment, etc., it continues through higher education.
Once we start our careers, while we are responsible to deliver at the workplace, it is essential to keep learning to stay current and advance our career growth. It is not enforced learning, but at the heart of it all is our curiosity!
When we age and one day, maybe retire, the human mind is such that it remains to be intensely curious seeking information-essentially seeking to learn via reading, watching television, community interactions, etc.
During this journey from birth until death, curiosity and hence learning is bound to happen. Learning is lifelong!
