Building a path in Self Learning
“Learning was of two kinds: the one being the things we learned and knew, and the other being the training that taught us how to find out what we did not know?”
― George S. Clason, The Richest Man in Babylon
In recent times, the world in which we live has become a field for one to either become knowledgeable about his or her surroundings or allow one’s mind to become stale.
The former being a wise and easier path to tread as the use of computers and the advent of the computers has created the means by which we can attain feats on knowledge without moving a step from the confines of our home or office. Thus the problem now longer lies in our inability to get the much needed knowledge that was once being horded, but to get the right one after sifting through a great reservoir of knowledge
This act of choosing what we feed our minds with and allow the items that are not fit for our consumption, are a herculean task. Coupled with the task of how to properly structure the data so that what needs to come into our minds to form the basis of learning should not be overlooked while we become indoctrinated with dogma and unverifiable knowledge.
The right approach to this is to create a self learning path for one to acquire the needed enterprise in learning or better still leave the task of creating the right path to follow while learning to the right men and women whose minds and lives have become the epistle through which others learn to grow mentally.
In the end , we come to realize that it is better to learn that which is right from the basics than it is to learn everything without a well structured learning path
