By now, we’ve learned that the learning process doesn’t end once you graduate from college. Hence, the term “learning” should not be mixed with education. The main reason to that is simply because education yields temporary results, while learning brings permanent and lifetime improvements. We are capable of absorbing knowledge throughout our whole life and it is never too late to learn new things if you are determined and motivated enough.
“If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.” ? Zig Ziglar

For example, something that we learned in high school or a college a few years ago, may have drastically changed in the meantime. As days and time goes by, scientists, professors and many researchers come to new knowledge even on a daily basis. You can see why it is everything but strange that our knowledge and skills can easily become outdated and irrelevant in no time.
