Learning Weekends:

Learning Weekends :April 2023

Alvin Toffler had said that “the illiterates of the 21st Century will not be those, who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and re-learn”. There is wisdom in unlearning habits, beliefs and assumptions that no longer serve a useful purpose. Another motivational quote from Jerry Rice, the legendary American football player is “Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.” Many eminent persons ranging from Benjamin Franklin ( https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/24824-an-investment-in-knowledge-always-pays-the-best-interest ), Bill Gates, Charlie Munger, Warren Buffet ( https://youtu.be/mQJU0LeN6xU ), Bill Clinton ( https://youtu.be/L_nUOfaWEC4 )  and Amitabh Bachchan ( https://youtu.be/vk2BiQB9WJM  ) have reiterated the importance of lifelong learning. 

Within two months of the chatGPT launch by OpenAI, Prime Minister Narendra Modi  said that self-learning through technology is an opportunity for today’s generation: https://lnkd.in/d9FJN9Jh
